And very much in the way the bagpipers use that traditional tune. Headed back tomorrow for the funeral of my good hunting & fishing buddy, who also happened to be a retired Pennsylvania Police Officer (& my brother-in-law). Taken too-early (54-years old) on his motorcycle last week (on Father's Day). I was just educated (by a very insightful person) that any death before it is expected is a life-burden for the survivors, and I've been feeling that weight all week. He leaves behind a devastated wife and 3 daughters and I know... sadly, how that life-burden for them will be a painful constant going forward. This will be a tough one.

He and I were supposed to fish Wyoming two-weeks before his passing (I couldn't go because of a conflict) so we'd been exchanging lots of photography of late. A larger-than-life individual (at 400-plus pounds!) Marty touched lots of lives over the years (he was even part of Colin Powell's security detail many years ago in Germany). A combined millitary and State Police funeral awaits him and his gathered family on Wednesday.

Godspeed Marty!

Sincerest sympathies, Lloyd. I do feel for his family.


May God bless America and those who defend her.

My sincere condolences to you, and to Marty's family Lloyd.


A true sign of mental illness is any gun owner who would vote for an Anti-Gunner like Joe Biden.

Leaving the Midwest this morning heading back to CO. Went by the hospital yesterday afternoon to say goodbye to my last brother in law knowing he doesn’t have long. Empathizing with you this morning,Lloyd, and asking grace for his family and for you.
