RP: I think just a couple more closing questions. Both you and Frank still have a very strong connection with the place that you grew up in, Fort Lupton.

GK: Yes, uh-huh.

RP: And you still attended services...

GK: We do.

RP: ..Buddhist services. What comes, what do you feel when you go out to that place?

GK: Oh, it's home. It's home, yeah. And you know, this is where our parents and Frank's parents are all buried there and everything. It's, we know the people well, we just feel at home, and you don't have to put on an act for anybody, you're just yourself. 'Cause they remember you as a young person also, so it's home for us, and we just feel very comfortable, we know everybody. I can joke with 'em and whatever. So we just are very comfortable at Fort Lupton.
