Toby, am so sorry to hear that. My best friend died also. I was more grief stricken than his son......and his son gave me a few words of wisdom...."we all expect to lose our parents some day. Programmed into us. But we NEVER expect to lose our best friend"...So true. This rips away a big chunk of our lives. Hang in there.....one day you'll be able to celebrate his life. One day.... But not now.............................FW Bill

"It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather, we should thank God that such men lived." Gen George S Patton.

I know, a different context. Still, prayers of Thanksgiving to the All Mighty for the blessings He bestowed on you via your friendship with him are not out of line. Cuz your heartfelt eulogy clearly shows the bounty of the blessing he was on your life.

Man how lucky you were to have known Gary. Those kind of friends are indeed rare and priceless.

I love how you're celebrating his life even in your grief. I have a feeling that Gary would like that.

Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
