And how can man die better than facing fearful odds,
For the ashes of his fathers,and the temples of his Gods"

When guns/ammo are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns and ammo. Get involved, fight for your rights before it's too late. <><

No fancy signature line. Too many meets to try and keep up with the icons.

I think all kids go through a phase where they think motorcycles are cool. The lucky ones never grow out of it.

I can think of no example in my life that better expresses the well known saying: "Life is not fair"...
I am glad that Patti is under the care of Hospice. My experience with them was wonderful while helping my Dad through his ordeal and to his final rest. They are truly the loving, caring health professionals in the field, and will work hard to provide relief for Patti in her final days at home, and surrounded by family and friends.
God Bless, Patti! My prayers and thoughts will be with you.

Last weekend, at Patti's request, and with her involved in the planning, Patti's family and closest freinds gathered with her for a party to celebrate her life. The event was decribed as "fantastic" by one who was there. After the gathering, everyone was able to spend some alone time with Patti who's disease is developing rapidly. She thanks you all for your love and prayers and asks that you will continue to stand with her family and other friends as we all go through the next few weeks.
through - RIP TJB

That is a wonderful gift... for her, her family, and her friends. She continues to be in my thoughts and prayers every day.
Live simply, Love generously, Care deeply, Speak kindly.
A journey is best measured in friends rather than miles.
