This man is the greatest cowboy that ever lived! He sure had one hell of a life! He was the tough guy who would kick the crap out of someone, but would take the clothes off his back to give to anyone! The memories that you left and your stories will be told on forever. Your spirit and lessons will live on in the people who you have inspired to never give up, that it can always get better. Thank you for teaching me so many things! He ain't as good as he once was but he's better then he'll ever be! I'm so glad I get to call you my crazy uncle. I sure have one great guardian angel! I know you're no longer in any pain! We're all saying bye to the last outlaw but heaven just got a little better. Have fun soaring with the eagles! I'll see you soon!
