Rest in Peace

“This isn’t just a loss to Saratoga and its community,” Saratoga resident Wanda Snell said shaking her head with eyes misting up. “This is a loss for Carbon County.”
Wanda was talking to me on the day after Keith McLendon, my buddy (20 years) and boss, had been pronounced dead in a Casper hospital on July 28.
It was a Monday and I had just gone into the office, dropped off my camera and recorder on my desk, and headed to the coffee machine.
As I started to get my mug, I realized I couldn’t be in the office at that moment because tears were starting to roll down my cheeks.
