To an old friend and for sure the toughest man I've ever known-he had MS for the last twenty years and than cancer the last couple. The man never complained and though he could curse a blue streak he never judged anybody and was a great family man. I'll never forget him coming up to me in the rink-I coach his grandson-he dragged his bumleg over to me-you could tell the cancer treatments were getting him all he said was"Wilson you #$%%^ if you ever wanted to bet on $%^&&* dead horse-I'm your man." He stayed out on his ranch his family around him till the very last-it was my kind of send off today-no preachers -just neighbor after neighbor getting up with their favorite memories-the family put on a slide show of his life-it was a sad day but glad he's not hurting any more.
