"My uncle's 1977 World Champion Bull Riding Buckle represents me because after he won the buckle, he sent it to the engraver and never got it back. I started a facebook page for him to gather up photos of his rodeo days and through it, we found his buckle. So all I can say in this day and time is that nothing should be lost. If you're willing to find it, you will."
