Rick Pergeson

January 1949

Uncle Rick was my only surviving relative after a long search finding him was not easy with little or no information at 8 years old and being adopted. After the loss of my child, I decided to take a journey and drive out west and connect with Rick with bits and pieces of the missing puzzle I was able to meet him, and he handed me my legacy! He lived off the grid, a gold miner all his life until the very end as well as his brother's family of miners! I believed in second chances, we developed a relationship in Grants Pass Oregon, visited the mining claims, and communicated 3-4 daily I was his only next of kin now 56 every conversation ended with, I love You Guys! I was his distraction with laughter during his end stage of life! Laughter no tears!
