Prayers to you and the family. I'm sorry for your loss.
Best news (if there is any) is that he's in a far better place.

Hey Buckshot, as the grave digger for the community I see alot. I've come to the theory that if there's anything good that can be brought out of this it is the fact that everybody had time to prepare, make peace, last words, enjoy happy memories, and anything that helps bring closure in accepting the facts. Not sure if this helps.

You guys are so right.

Timbergost that is true there was plenty of time to get the affairs in order. And make some last requests, he asked me to get his son out deer hunting and you can bet that I will.

The service was not like any I've ever witnessed that's for sure. Tony was a Southern Baptist and pretty well known Nationally in Gospel singing circles. There was some beautiful singing and I'll just say lots of the holy spirit.

If your to busy to go hunting, your just to busy.

That's awesome buckshot... funeral's aren't always a sad occasion. Especially if the person was suffering in anyway. I lost my aunt 2 years ago to Luekemia, but she was a very strong christian and she is in a better place now and feeling no pain or discomfort what-so-ever. The world was a better place because she lived, and I have no clue how many people she lead to Christ because of her teaching and witnessing.
We have a chance to have such an impact on people's lives. ESPECIALLY our children....
God Bless your friend...

Buckshot, just catching up on past posts and wanted to express my condolences to your buddy's family and your loss of a good friend. My two best hunting/fishing/friends/family buddies are gone also , Dad and my brother. Seems like this life can be so cruel that the big guy must have something better in store for all of us. I know that losses take time to become tolerable but I also know we never forget nor under appreciate those close to us that have passed before us. Pass that bottle around the ole campfire and we'll all salute those we miss!
