    Thanks for the thread and the concern Phyllis, and to everyone that posted the well wishes!

    Now that I am feeling better, I have actually turned the computer on.

    As some of you know, Sarah and I accompanied her father, uncle(Clyde) and a couple other guys to the Buffalo River in Arkansas last week. We arrived on Monday morning and got our fishing license's and checked into the cabin.

    Monday evening was and Tuesday we basically relaxed and did a little fishing, but not much. We did some BBQing and hung out with family and friends. Good times to say the least!

    Wednesday morning, the guys wanted to float the river, but for some reason, Sarah and I decided not to go. Now, I wish we would have.....Sarah's uncle Clyde passed away in a tragic canoe accident. Somehow the canoe tipped over and in the midst of struggling to swim to shore, the Doctor's believe Clyde suffered a massive heart-attack. Sarah's father and the other guys in our party did CPR for 40-45 minutes on the river bank waiting for the helicopter to arrive, but alas it was to late. He never regained consciousness.

    Clyde, you will be missed. He was an avid fisherman and was falling for the big blues.

    Clyde, you'll never be forgotten!

    Ohhhh man.:sad2: Sorry to hear about your family's loss, Bill. This really sucks.

    It don't make it any easier on those he left behind but at least he went out doing what he loved--albeit much to soon.

    Your family is in my thoughts.

    Bill, I am sorry to hear about yours and Sarahs loss. I remember that night we went fishing with Clyde when he caught that fish. He was a heck of a guy and he will be missed.
