    Default Thanks Folks

    This is still hard for me to type, but my dad passed away on Wednesday, August 25, 2010 after a long and courageous battle with cancer. He was 78 years old and a dang good father and husband.

    I would like to personally thank nvrL8, jeffnles1, silvercreek, gmreeves, MadisonBoats, Noonan, Paula Begley, GrouseMan77, JohnH0802, MtnMike, Dancing Bear, Flyfishjeep, highpockets, Byron Begley, Knothead, and speed43 for the kind words of encouragement and prayers during my dad's illness. I would also like to thank anyone else whom I may have inadvertently left out. You folks are the best.

    Last week was the first week that I have been back on this fine forum since May 2010. Between helping take care of my dad and my mindset after his death, I just didn't have the time or desire to participate. But, time has managed to heal a few wounds and I am looking forward to a year of fantastic fishing and great conversations. And most importantly, I'm looking forward to time with my family. Thanks again, folks.

    Our families prayers for your father and the whole family. We recently lost my Dad and it's a tough thing, especially if it's unexpected. Your mother is very fortunate to have children like you guys.

    Fishing will be there later. Family first is the right way to go.

    Dave - I really hate to hear that you lost your father. Seeing a family member or friend go is a terrible thing. Keep his memory close to your heart and remember that you will see him again someday.

    On Christmas Eve, I had to take my father to the Emergency Room for muscle spasms. After performing a chest x-ray, they found that he had pneumonia in his right lung and concerning spots on his left lung. After a doctor visit this week and CT Scan at the hospital, he found out that he has lung cancer. My dad, my brother and I, and our entire family is having a tough time dealing with it. My main objective right now is to provide as much love and support for him and my mother as I humanly can. I'll be back here one of these days. I hope everyone has a healthy, safe, and prosperous new year.
    Dave,
    I will be thinking of you and your family! My prayers and blessings go out to your father! The best medicine during this time of duress is prayer and great family love. Try not to let the negatives overwhelm you and push forward with positive thoughts and share wonderful memories with one another. Keep your head up and remember that you are never alone. Give yourself some peace and reach out to God in time of need. He will guide your forward my friend!

    Dave,
    I am sorry for the loss of your father, and you and your family will be in our prayers. It has been a tough year for alot of folks this year. I lost my grandson Landon this past year....it was not unexpected, but extremely difficult to deal with. I know that He is in a better place and try and console myself with the fact that it was a miracle that he survivied childbirth at all. We also lost my wife's father this past year to cancer. It has been an extremely trying year, but we try to get through it as best we can. Please take the time you have now to be thankful for what you have....cherish your time now with your loved ones and thank the Lord for the time we have. Who knows when our time might be up. My prayers are with you and your family.

    John

    Hope you father get better soon. My dad was diagnosed with colon cancer about 15 years ago and after all the chemo and radiation he has been in remission ever since and had no more problems from the cancer. If you dont mind me asking, how old is your father?
    "Unless one can enjoy himself fishing with the fly, even when his efforts are unrewarded, he loses much real pleasure. More than half the intense enjoyment of fly-fishing is derived from the beautiful surroundings, the satisfaction felt from being in the open air, the new lease of life secured thereby, and the many, many pleasant recollections of all one has seen, heard and done." - Charles F.
