Sad day

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Sad day

Postby Rockchucker » Tue Oct 22, 2013 12:19 pm

I debated for hours wether or not to post this but decided to get it out. My father-in -law died unexpectedly this morning. He was found by my wife's mother on the bathroom floor. 57 years old, he and I where very close, we deer hunted, camped, BBQed..... I cried most of the morning but have pulled it together enough to arrange a family meal for this evening.

I'm sorry for being a downer but feel I needed to get it out. Thanks for listening to my wine.

Its only a temperary loss my friend. Moments of despair is just that....a moment in eternity. Trust everything is as it should be, and couldnt possibly be any other way. Peace and love to you and your family

There really are no right words to express my sympathy and condolences to you and your family. When I've experienced similar circumstances, I've found nature provides the best healing together with the love of the family.

I couldn't agree more, my wife even said "Tyson will just go hike it off"
