Hey brother, Happy Thanksgiving in heaven. Miss you so much, miss all the great times we had together. Finally have decided to go hunting again. It's going to be odd and sad at the same time. I'll miss the laughs and times we had together in the woods as much as anything. It's been tough dealing with you being gone all these years brother. I still find myself breaking down in tears at the thought of it. There has been so many changes you would love it. Anyhow I miss and love you brother. I'll see you when I get there. You keep the beer cold and the stool open for me and we will have a cold one when that time comes.
