Man this sucks to here.  Our thoughts are with you brother!
It is foolish and wrong to mourn these men.  Rather, we should thank god that such men lived.  -General George S. Patton

Sorry to hear you lost your Dad.  It is one of the hardest stages in life, especially since you lost your hunting partner at the same time.  My prayers go out to your family.  God bless him.

It must be a bittersweet Christmas day. Hopefully you can find some joy and peace in memories you have with him.

Really sorry to hear about your dad. RIP at least he's in a better place now and watching over you and your family. Every hunt you go on he will still be with you in your heart and mind and in the animals your harvest.

RIP

Thanks all for your support.  Dad had dementia/Alzheimer the last couple years.  He is in a much better place now.  Today was a roller coaster of emotions, but I'm doing OK.  The rest of the family seems to be OK also.  We all gathered for Christmas today.

laid him to rest today.

I lost it with the bosun whistle.  Just tanked at taps.

Like some one said, taps is like a piece of your heart is ripped right out of your body.....RIP dad!

I missed the turn into the church yesterday when MN missed the field goal.  We think dad nudged the ball to miss.

Go Hawks!  Dad had season tickets to the King dome... last games I have seen live

We were just above the nose bleed area (7 rows from the top) but it was the 40 yard line
