I Walked Among Giants

A good friend, who I met 35 years ago, just passed away in his sleep last night. He was an inspiration with his faith, his integrity, and his willingness to serve others, and his God. I only could ream of being the man he was. He passed on 5 days before his 95th birthday. His name, though none of you could know it, was Garnet McJanet. He helped shape my life through his example,

There is but one man I ever respected as much, my own Step-Father, Robert Neil Cartwright. May they both enjoy the afterlife they deserve.

Seeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North

Sorry to hear about your friend, Chief, but glad to hear that he had such a long, and obviously wonderful life, with friends like you. May he R.I.P.

Losing people we admire is worse than sad.

This past year has taken too many of my close high school classmates.

I weep not for my friend. He lived a rich, and rewarding life, and is now in a better place. This is my belief. I thank everyone for your support. If prayer is part of your life, then ask for strength, for his dear wife, and those who loved and miss him.
