    Congrats to you guys and what a great thing to be able to give something to Ian's wife. I'm sure those here would give it all back and much more to have him here instead.

    The rifle raffle was a great thing to do for a friends family.
    I feel good of being part of a group of people that care about each other.
    Ian and his knowledge will always be missed!!!
