Janet and Mike, we're so sorry we couldn't be there with you tonight. We'll be thinking of you and I'll probably be shedding a few tears. This isn't the way we humans are supposed to say good bye to someone we love. MaryAnn

Took many deer off his land. I have great memories of hunting with my father and son on his place. Always enjoyed listening to his stories and sharing our harvest with him.
