Tribute to Half Eye
« on: April 24, 2019, 02:28:58 pm »
Hey everyone!

Not sure you all know that Half Eye passed away last weekend.  He was a dear friend and a regular contributor to this site.  His expertise and detailed advice about bows and many primitive topics will be sorely missed.  He was diagnosed with lung cancer and was awaiting treatment options.  So sad that he is not with us..............but if you are like me..............his spirit and upfront candor will live on through me and my craft.  Every time a make a small hunting point (i called them girly points to Half Eye) I will chuckle a bit and feel his presence.  Hope many of you feel the same way.  Pray for Donna and the family during this time of great loss.

Sincerely on behalf of my dear friend Half Eye.

Don, why don't you write an article for PA Magazine about Rich. I'm sure you can get lots of info and examples of Rich's work from members here. I'd be pleased to send you pics of the 3 bows Rich sent me. PA Magazine is always looking for articles and one about Rich would be appreciated.

Agree Pat B.   Let me know if there is anything I can contribute to an article.  Thanks for bringing up the idea.

Since you knew Rich so well why don't you write it?

Pat,
        If you mean me, I am a terrible writer and wouldn't know how to begin...I would be glad to contribute any info I can or pictures...Just got of the phone with Donna 5 minutes ago and she is doing as well as to be expected...She will be moving to N.Carolina before winter arrives...Right now she is surrounded by family and friends...They had his memorial service today...I will think more on this, thanks Pat...

I just want to say I think it's a nice idea to write a article for PA. I also want to say it's very easy to submit one. Even a old farmer who almost failed English class and had to take Composition class twice can do it. Still don't remember a thing about that class other than I didn't like it or the teacher.

An article would be greatly welcomed and appreciated.  We have proof readers so just write from your heart - the rest is taken care of.  bjrogg is correct we love articles from the readers, perfection is not the goal.. Heart is.

I don't know how I missed this, haven't been spending as much time on PA site lately. Rich was a special individual. He always took time to answer questions and share his wealth of knowledge, and his workmanship was particular and exact. He will be missed.
