It was mid October when Gail flew to North
Dakota as Becky gave birth to Denvy and Gail's first grandchild, Payton
Rose. All went well and Gail returned to work in Oregon. Becky was to
return to work in December so after the fall term was complete Denvy flew
to North Dakota arriving Sunday. Monday morning Becky went to work with
Denvy and a sleeping baby to share the day. When Payton awoke, Denvy fixed
her first bottle with some concern about how Payton would take the bottle.
Well, Payton was good to grandpa as she took the bottle and quietly took
her first look at grandpa.
later after Gail finished her term she joined the group in North Dakota
for Payton's baptism.
Becky and Adam
When Becky went on an outing with her parents
during one of their trips to the Midwest, a friend stopped by her appartment
and cleaned the place and also did her dishes. He, Adam Roehrich, a railroad
worker, hunter and fiherman, was a "keeper." Months later they
moved in together and shorthly after that they followed his work to Mandan.
During the winter of 2000, after
it was declared that all computers would not fall apart at the turn of
the century, they married. Another couple months later they bought the
house across the alley from the church where they were married.
