Happy Birthday Sally

Post by ICDEDTURKES »

She would have been 39 today... Her and one of our best friends had the same birthday, there birthdays always coincided with our first big push of migrants

This is from 2017.... All the stars aligned the birds were grabbing close.... We limited right quick, of course we had a big cooler for a beer for picking up and ran to the store for another 30.... We sat on tailgates til dark jamming out tipping back..... Was probably the most fun I've had in the goose field the entire crew laid back just pounding them....

Don't take anything or anyone for granted alot can change I just a few years....

I got up early sprayed the food plot today, it's littered in bones from geese, ducks, turkeys and deer from our time together.... Saw a Busch light can or two from our celebratory toasts... Looked down one lane to the spot she killed her first buck and down another go where she killed her last....

Great story, Tom.
Memories are a gift from God that can never be taken away from us. Life is precious and oh so fragile.. Your heart is never ready and the time is never right to say goodbye..
Never hesitate to tell someone how much you love them..

Life is so fragile, literally. But yet WE all take it for granted every day. Then it's over, only to be forgotten way to soon. Please Mr. I, hold them memories close and forever. Again condolences to you !

The older I get, the more I fall back on a nonattributable quote, which I have used in the eulogy for several friends, "Don't cry when it's over. Smile that it happened." That good woman gave you a lot of smiles, and for that you've been blessed.
