I was going through some old photos the other day looking for something specific when I came upon these two and I was sad for a moment. Richard Bideaux was like my brother and I miss him terribly. John Sinkankas was always so good to us and taught us so much and I miss him too. These two are some of the most important people ever to pass through the world of minerals. Too bad only some of us old folks remember them….
