My name is Laura Love. I grew up in Tucumcari, N.M. and spent a lot of weekends with my grandparents, Jake V. Gallegos and Mary Letcher Gallegos on their ranch. I remember hearing a few stories growing up, but now I wish I had paid closer attention. So many things I would ask now.

I am discovering more and more about them, their family history and most importantly, the stories. I am on a journey to find these lost stories.
