    Well My freind and Fishing Partner Left this world 3 years ago today. It's Sad that He's Gone but I know that hes in a better place. I dont figure that you could actually ever replace a good friend .God knows that he sits on my shoulder when I catch the big ones. He would have really loved this site. sadly Missed but never forgotten, heres to you Jim. .may the fish keep biting where you are...............

    You will never be able to replace him brother!!! All you can do is remember the good times you shared and share them with someone else that can fish with you from time to time!!
    Gone but never forgotten!!! The ledgend will live on as long as you can remember!!!

    It's tough to lose a good friend. Make sure you keep his memory alive by talking about him and let others that knew him know that it's OK for them to talk about him too. Often people are too embarrased to mention those who are gone but I think to not talk about them is wrong. He was part of your life why not remember and speak of the good times...W

    Hey Greg,
    I know how you fill - I lost my a fishing Buddy on the 1st of August of this year.:sad2:
    But I just look at it this way - our fishing Buddys maybe gone, and are in a much better place - but when you think about it, they are always there everytime we go fishing or anywhere of that matter. So you see - we haven't lost them - we just don't see them there anymore.
    (Think about it :roll_eyes: )

    You takecare Buddy,
    Bert:cool2: & Shaina:0010:

    Thanks for all of the support on this post. It means alot to me that everyone understands what we have lost one way or another. I stopped at his grave today to visit and it felt like he was sitting right there with a smile . Thanks Again Greg Carlin
