  1. I first met Audean, in the wee hours of the day, after he closed the Tascosa Theater. I was working midnight to 8 shift, and we would meet at Denny’s Restaurant, on N. Fillmore at Amarillo Blvd. Never met a nicer man. Always wanted to buy my breakfast or coffee, which I reluctantly let him do so very often. That is just a sign of how considerate he was, and was willing to do so. Over the years, we would see each other occasionally, and it was still the same. I have known him since the early 1960’s, and, like I said before, never met a nice man.
