Dear Heavenly Father, as I kneel prostate before you, I can only say thank you for the honor you bestowed upon me to try to repay a man who dedicated his life to provide for me and my mother, by helping my mother, his beloved wife of 65 years, handling his every single want and need.  It’s a fact I just lost one half of my two best friends in life, but I take solace in all the many hours we spent in the deer and turkey woods together for the last 30 years.  What a reign! Even at 91, still successful at harvesting deer and turkey with a cross bow.  Goodbye for now but it won’t be too long and we’ll meet again. Until then, thank you my Friend.
