I would like to thank each and every brother and their family members that made it out to the gathering this weekend. I sure do appreciate that you made the time to spend the weekend or to just stop by for awhile. Especially consider the short planning and re planning that when into this one. Tony would have loved to met all the members that he didn't know and talking to those of us he did know. I for one am glad that Eva saw to it that Tony was there and his wishes were taken care of. That's all I will say about that. It was great honor to have Eva there and to have her share such an event with all of us. Thank you very much Eva. I am also very pleased by all the brothers that generously gave donations to help out a fallen brothers wife. Thank you for helping her. It was great to meet quite a few members that I haven't got to yet. Some of them drove a few miles to say the least. With the gas prices the way the are I was very surprised to see them make the trip. Big Dave wins the honors of coming the furthest all the way from Virginia. Thank ya Dave for choosing our little gathering to attend. Also thanks to all the local members for coming out. As always I had a great time seeing and talking too all of you again. A huge thanks to you Loanwizard for accepting the chef position, the MC job, and handling the donations. Also for taking me out on your boat during the memorial service for our brother Tony. I appreciated that more then you know. Sorry to the guys that missed part of it do to scheduling. I do apologize for that. But we also didn't expect Eva to come out and share such a special moment with us. That was very last minute. In the end I hope everyone had a great time meeting with each other and wetting a line or too. Thank you everyone for making this short planned memorial gathering a success. I am sure Tony is proud of all of you for being there.
