Personal Notes:
Noreen Kirk was Bert's maternal grandmother. She and her husband Bufford were the nicest, warmest, welcoming, gentle people that I have ever met. I always looked with pleasure to spending time with them. They had homes in Austin and Ruidoso, it seems that Bert and I have been in other's back pockets all of our lives!
