    We lost a great supporter and true friend yesterday with the passing of long time Meadow Vue Ranch Cutting Producer Dennis Moedl. Dennis's rock solid western heritage and beliefs, as well as strong family values, were proudly reflected in each and every cutting and relationship throughout the years. The true "ranch" cutting always proved to be a success, no matter what mother nature would throw its way! Dennis produced the Meadow Vue Ranch Cutting for going on 30 years and it has been enjoyed by many associations and families. We as cutters are lucky that that tradition and heritage will be carried on for many years to come by Dennis's family and friends.

    Condolences can be mailed to Meadow Vue Ranch, Box 93, Macks Inn, ID 83433.
