Richard Clayton Jensen and I were close friends during our Paradise Elementary School days...also was good friends with his younger sister, Yvonne Kim (the last I heard she is married and living in Utah).  We played many marathon Monopoly Games and went to Disneyland (while Walt was still alive : ).  His mom and dad, George and Marylou, gave me a job at thier Winchell's Donut shop while I was attending UNLV.  I was saddened to learn of Richard's passing, but I am thankful for this site informing me of this.
