    Rick,

    Condolences to you and yours on your most personal loss. Hearth.com is like family and sometimes it's just hard to find the words to express the meaning - so, here's a hug and a whisper in your ear, "So very, very sorry for your loss."

    Rick brother, no words can take your pain away, so I will not pretend they will.
    Time which is your foe right now, will be your friend and lessen the pain down the road, never completely removing it, but we always want some to remain, so we may never forget those that mean the most.
    Go with the flow, and ride it out.

    Enjoy seeing all the faces.
    Hang in their Rick, I really have no words adequate for the situation, except advice you've probably already heard, to stay close to friends and family, and try to stay busy.


    This pic is a few years old now, got it off this online family picture gallery. http://southokanagan.biz/gallery/

    Well here I am . . . Hearth.com's resident fat, balding firefighter geek. I tried looking for a photo that I took of myself a few years back after a tree branch whacked me in the forehead leaving me with a nice cut requiring several stitches . . . but couldn't find it . . . guess these will have to suffice.

    Well, I know I don't post here often, but I have been a faithful observer for well over a year. This forum is one of the little "comforts" in life...... much like a warm wood fire! I love it here. Anyway, enough of the mush.

    Me and my Clan.........

    I mean the saw, the kids and woman I don't know!

    Oh what the heck - If Jake isn't afraid of showing his double chin, neither am I. ;-)

    Jags doing two of his favorite things. One of them involves beer.

    Thanks Ray,
    It is strangely liberating to expose your self and loved ones to others who you don't know in person, but it feels like some of us are friends. What a big world this is and we are all being connected by machines. What an incredible concept. Never ceases to amaze me!
    Keep posting guys this is still interesting.

    Had to crop these pics something fierce to fit. The first one you will have to excuse my complexion, I was not feeling well :cheese: The second was a much need nap with Layla, as a pup. Oh wait, she's 3 1/2 now and still a pup. The third is me and my wife 5 1/2 years ago. Rick, I once heard that to grieve, you must walk through the fire. No pun intended. Keep your head up.

    They may be in the wrong order. Newbie mistake.

    I may have missed something there, though I didn't scroll through all 17 pages I did look at quite a few and don't recall seeing any pictures beyond the usual avatars.
