    Last note from Cris before he passed away:

    This year marks the 20th anniversary (1998-2018) of The Sand Pebbles website. I am grateful to all those who have contributed and to the many fans who have visited over the years. Although the bulk of my collection has been posted on this website occasional additions may occur in the future. As always I continue to monitor this site and will answer all emails I receive.
