WHICH WILL IT BE? -- The three small children of Mr. and Mrs. John Morford, 1207 La Junta Ave., consider who will be most likely to tote off the winning prizes Saturday in the Kiddies Rodeo Dress Up Revue at Acacia Park. With 9 a.m. the starting time Tommy, 7, is eyeing the working cowboy class. Mary Jane, 5, (center) is considering the working cowgirl class of course. Julie Ann, 3 1/2, doesn't care which division she enters -- she just knows she's going to enter one of them that's for sure. But Paycheck the horse can't enter anything at all. The Revue is for kids 15 years old and under and Paycheck is a little over the legal age -- he's 26 years old.

John Joseph Morford died on 17 January 2005 at age 75 per SSDI, last residence Colorado Springs, CO. He was buried in January 2005 at Evergreen Cemetery, Colorado Springs, El Paso Co., CO, Findagrave #22684071.

"We loved her, yes we loved, her,
But the angels loved her more.
And they have sweetly called her,
To yonder shining shore.

The golden gates were opened
A gentle voice said, 'Come',
And with farewells unspoken
She calmly entered home."
Funeral services were held at the Eureka Methodist church Wednesday afternoon, Dec. 27, at 1 o'clock, Rev. L. C. McNeil officiated. Interment was in the Stafford cemetery.
