    Default Sad News to share

    Folks,

    I was saddened to receive news last week that the original poster of this thread - Mark Craighead from Crossbreed Holsters unexpectedly and suddenly passed away on August 24th.

    Although Mark was not a regular contributer to this forum, I know that he did follow the happenings on AH - which is how he found me.

    I had the honour and pleasure to hunt with Mark and his daughter Tori in June and thoroughly enjoyed their company - both in the field and around the campfire.

    Those who knew Mark would also know that he was an exceptional, hard working man with a great sense of humour and a passion for his family. My heart goes out to those whom he left behind.

    Mark, RIP my Brother!

    That is terrible news.
    I think I speak for all of the AH members here, condolences to his family.

    Really sad news! I liked Mark and his enthusiasm. RIP

    I'm happy he made it to Africa this last summer.

    Chris pass along condolences to his family.
    Indeed a very good thing that he got to share a good hunt with his daughter.
    Practice whispering before you leave for Africa!
    A Legend in my own mind!

    Looks like a great hunt for all. The Kudu is very nice. Your bushbuck will look very nice next to him!
