    Just spoke to Don, and he gave me permission to post pics of him and his place that I took visiting him about 5 years ago.

    P1020569.JPG P1020577.JPG P1020581.jpg P1030011 copy.jpg P1020462.jpg P1020466.jpg P1020454.jpg P1020457.jpg

    He has pretty much given up. Tells me he's bedridden these days. Please send him your prayers...

    I hate to hear this, but I completely understand.

    I'm sure each man comes to know the limits of his own body and mind, comes to know that he's done all that he can do and is at ease that he has prepared himself for what lies before him and has prepared those he leaves behind as well.

    If Don is at that place tell him it's okay to let go.

    Let him know he's touched people he has never met but who know him through his words and actions.

    I suspect we will meet in the future, Ducky but probably not in this world. I'll pray for a miracle but if not, smooth travel.

    arminius: Please pass on my best wishes to Don. Wonderful to see him and the duck nest. He and his homestead look like I imagined.
    He is a great asset to the forum. I will pray for him. Based on what Don has shared, a life well lived.

    Thank you again for doing this stuff.

    Those eyes are the eyes in his avatar.

    Best wishes to you Duck! I could live in a place like that. Plenty of room for a shop and stuff.

    Unfortunately, the wife would object!

    Saddens my heart to hear that Sir Duck is in a bad way and perhaps face to face with that day wich surly awaits us all.

    "So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.

    Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none.

    When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself. Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision.

    When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home." Tecumseh '

    I choose to believe that's the way you lived it and the way you will go sir.
    Thanks for the memories and kindness you showed me in my short time here, Goodbye my friend.

    Funniest thing. You know how you see a poster on this forum, and you imagine in your mind what they look like, what type of house/property they may have, or any other personal attribute? I have to say, he looks just like i thought he would. I think this is evidence of the Duck's honesty, integrity and just down to earthness. The man is a REAL human being, not some phony trying to portray himself any way other than he is. I truly admire you Duck! People like you are hard to come by anymore. I wish I had more friends like you that live close by. You are a Gem for sure!

    YES, I hope to hear from him soon, but I am afraid that it will be when I am in that space with duck, gone from this space....
