Sadly, we lost another one. One of the original members of our duck hunting club passed away last Saturday. Ted was a consummate gentleman, soft spoken, friendly,and gracious. He was a fly fisherman, a champion duck and goose caller, a serious drag racer...a sportsman by any and all measures.. I spent many cold mornings with this fine man in duck and goose blinds and many evenings  around the dining table at the club.
He will be missed.

Since I was ten I have been camping and fishing with the same group of guys for 35 years. We have added a few members over the years, brother in law, sons, a neighbor. My father, being the oldest at 80, rarely makes out trips. He occasionally stays nearby at an inn, spending the days with us, the nights at the inn. We love it when he makes the trip. The older folks of the group, now retired, have begun to face the challenges of aging...cancer, joint replacement, heart issues. When my Dad makes it, all of the originals are there. But we know at some point we' ll loose a member. Not sure if we will continue our twice a year trips at that point. I certainly hope so but it just won't be the same. Sorry for your groups loss.

Sorry to hear it. He spent his allotted time well, though, by the looks of it.
