When we moved to Maui from Oahu in 1969 we moved in next to Richard and Susie. Richard taught us about pigs and cattle, branding and fence living. I remember he used to burn rubbish in an old wine cellar that had collapsed. One time he put some gas in the rubbish hole and could not get it to light. By the time he tossed the final match into the hole the gas fumes had expanded. You should have seen the explosion and fireball! I remember Richard running from that hole and laughing. I was 12 at the time. The Bode boys were all present to witness that event. Only in the country could such memories be made. It was a sight to see and hard to believe it was 48 years ago. There are too many memories to record here - all good and many helped to shape who we are today. My condolences to Susie and the entire family. Karl Bode, Phoenix, AZ
