Good for you mhbrewster, way to show support for our greatest folks on Earth !!

So I think there should be an end to this auction so how about 5 days. 6:00pm Saturday this will come to an end and I will get the address of the winner and ship immediately, also the winner will be responsible for getting the money to the family !!  :tup:

Might not get alot of attention in this board though, may need it to be in the general discussion board ??

Thank you..

I think it'd be great if this thread was moved to gain some more traction and to help out the family a little more.

I'll stop you guys right here.  Family is just fine.  Hunter and Amalia have endless hunting, fishing, and outdoor opportunities ahead of them and aren't hurting in the least financially.  If there is anything raised from the auction of the Spoon it needs to go directly to Salmon for Soldiers so they can continue to provide outdoor opportunities for those who do not have the means or the Avenue to enjoy the out-of-doors.  All of you guys are awesome and as always I'm humbled by the honor and respect shown to Aaron and his memory :tup:

Ok Karl, in light of your request, and also the lack of interest so far in this I am going to suggest this be terminated as of now and I will ship this spoon directly to mhbrewster and he can make a donation to the salmon for Soldiers as he sees fit !! Hows that sound ??
I am very happy to hear the family is doing well, glad to help wherever I can should the need arise !!

that works or have mods move this or you want to make a new thread.

Regardless, thank you for continuing to keep Aaron, Becky, and the kids in your thoughts.  It means the world to us!

I was just thinking of Aaron as I was replying in the true spike thread.

Prayers to his family.  He will always be missed.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.
