    .........and begins the long journey home.

    So goes the story of my 64-year-old brother-in-law, who was diagnosed with esophageal cancer a few months ago and lost his battle with the disease early this morning. He was one of the last true "rednecks"---beer cans in the back pocket of his jeans, Rush Limbaugh on the radio three hours a day, a picture of John Wayne in his bathroom, an arsenal of guns in his walk-in closet. But he'd give you the shirt off his back if you needed it, and his sense of humor made many a hard time bearable. I will miss him terribly.

    Rest in peace, bro. God is nigh.

    Death of a family member is always devastating no matter how "prepared" you try to be...it's always hard no matter how strong you are...please accept my condolences LG.

    Carrie, I'll say a little prayer for your brothers too...:( Yes, life can be hard...in many ways.

    God bless you and yours. He sounds like a great guy. You forgot to mention his pickup truck with a gun rack in the rear window.:yes:

    Carrie, I hope yours works out for the best. You are in our prayers.
