I will greatly miss you brother. We had such good time together. My hunting and knife Buddy has put a deep hole in my heart that will remain till my very end. I am glad i visited you and Shelba back in August. Talked about knives and old adventures. Rest in peace and keep your eyes open for everything. A very special brother. LOVE and MISS you.
