Will add my prayers.

Got to be harder on the family left behind when they can't ID the cause of his decline...

Sad, but this world is not our home nor our resting place...

Peace that passes all understanding to be with the family...and his loyal friend(s).

I was unaware he was the maker of Humingbird bows. Never handled one but heard they were well received...

Rest in peace, Ben. Your work here is done.

Dock, here is a picture of Ben at Denton Hill probably about tens years ago. Its hard to believe you didn't know him or his wife Linda. He also set up at Baltimore a few times. God bless, Scott.  -

Thanks, Scott.

Face doesn't ring bells, but the clapper is out of my memory bank bell I think... [Roll Eyes] [knothead]

That may have been my era where I quit trying bows cause nothing fit my paw... All the "custom" were just ala carte chinese take out menus of wood choices...

I mentioned to Linda that several folks have expressed condolences on many archery web forums. She asked that a photo of Ben's casket arrangement be added so folks could see how nicely decorated it was with Ben's archery gear. So, for Linda....

Fitting tribute. Lovely arrangement. Indeed, prayers will continue for Linda to know His Peace that passes all understanding...

Doc,

Ben's recurve and arrows are in the floral arrangement on the casket. His mastrefully tooled side quiver hangs beneath. Seeing it in person was quite touching.

Thanks, Bud.

my vision isn't what it once was. I could see the bows ok, the quiver just fine, but didn't pik out the arrows...that's pretty cool.

A dear old gent passed before I got my first PA wild turkey... He and his wife were my neighbors and very special. I showed her one of my tail feathers and she said to put it in with "Jack" in his coffin...

She had him dressed in his new dungarees, suspenders and flannel shirt. That was how he dressed his whole life and she wasn't going to suit him up...

Me? Guess I'l just get toasted. Nobody to grieve over me anyway...

Will continue to remember his family in prayer.

Prayers will continue for her transition and for those who knew and loved him...

Thanks for that feedback, Lee!
