I promise to do my best to guard the fort....carry on Den, you have been an influence and an inspiration to me....your little bits of wisdom put a smile on my face when TSHTF and it has been an honor to call you my friend. See you later...put in a good word for me.

That is the finest eulogy I have ever been honored to know; I am sorry for your loss. As an aside I pray that at least one person has the same sentiment towards me and my life upon my demise.

It sounded as though he was a great steward for the shooting sports and a good firearms advocate.
May you treasure the fond memories you have shared with him.
