May you rest in the arms of Jesus. We had our time and lots of runs with the gang. You were definitely a force to be reckoned with and an awesome hunter. Until we meet again peace and rest. Love and forever RB

We'll remember you in your Jeep and seeing you at the AM Vets. You were always ready to talk and tell stories or show pics of your coyote hunts. May you rest in peace and happy hunting in the big sky. You'll be missed on the Hollow and on the Lane. RIP, John.
