    Allen, spend what time you must mourning Ben's death, but celebrate longer his life.
    He is not in that dead earthly body, for his spirit lives to warm your soul in the first peep of the sun over the ridge or your sudden awareness of a wild creature in your presence.

    My Dad's earthly body is gone, but just when I think I am alone in my duck blind, or shivering in a deer hunting hide...I remember who taught me those skills and more over to make room on the log and in my heart.

    Dear Sir

    Thanks for the cool hunting story about your boys, enjoyed reading it! Also, my deepest condolences to you and your family. Sounds like your son was a great man and you instilled the right values in him. Also I commend you for the idea of the hunt your putting together. What an awesome idea and a great way to honor your son!!
    In my times of loss, two of my best friends inside of a year, I found comfort in knowing how much they gave while they were here and that they both are with me every step of every hunt. Sometimes I think maybe God takes the great ones from us early and has other plans for them in Heaven. Maybe its because they do more, give more, live more, in a shorter time than most people.
