I want to send condolences to the Camenish family. Phil & I went to school together from the first through the tenth grade We were in the same grade. Both of our families were in the dairy business, one mile apart, in the '30s & '40s in Broomfield. I was an A.I. technician and bred cows for Phil & Shirley when they lived East of Firestone. I will miss you, Phil. God Bless, Jim Docheff
