    Some Treasures are Found and Some Treasures are Lost

    On Monday morning I lost my father. He was 53 years old and put up one hell of a fight for 4 years against lymphoma. Tonite we closed the casket with family and friends and tomorrow we will bury him next to his father in the family cemetary on our farm. It has been a tough few days but then again its been a long hard road for him and I m sure he is in a better place.
    Here are a few more recent pictures of him doing what he loved more than anything, hunting and fishing.

    He is very ill even in these pics
    One of a baby flathead catfish A throwback he said
    And the small 8 pointer he bagged last year it was his last buck.
    He has taken more large deer and bear than most people on earth.

    His best 2 bucks are a typical BC 184 3/8 after deductions and a BC Non typical( i dont recall the exaact score but the buck has 27 scorable points)
    ANd 2 BC black bears both taken with the bow.

    I love you Dad and miss you.

    Tough to ever have the right words. Cherish those memories, sounds like your dad was a better than average sportsman. Most hunters will never lay their eyes on bucks of that caliber. Thoughts are with you now and in the future James.

    Re: Some Treasures are Found and Some Treasures are Lost

    James, Having lost my father 12 years ago to lymphoma, I can sympathize completely, its hard on everyone involved. It's hard to say anything to help ease some of the hurt... Just knowing that he is no longer hurting and suffering and that someday you will see him again, should help some.

    Keep your chin up and reflect on all the good times. And also know that your being close with him helped him during his stuggles.

    You and your family are in my thoughts & prayers.
