He died in 2008. Pretty sure he is buried in Iceland.

A far as the Miken Ultra II, you kids aren't old enough to use one yet!!!![afro]
Pretty bizarre to see a 64 year old guy hit a ball over a 300' fence!!!![]

I use the Miken Freak 98 religiously, and as far as ASA bats go, I haven't swung anything better!!!

bought myself a .243 Savage rifle with a 3x9 Nikon scope.
Actually bought this awhile back at a Walmart. I was shocked the price
on it was only $450 - just couldn't turn that down. Only one they had there too.
Didn't really need another rifle, but I always wanted a .243 rifle.
Have had it for 2 months and shot 3 coyotes on my property out my front door.
Probably good for those other 4 legged canines - 'Canus lupus', but I don't have
tags to shoot them - YEAH RIGHT!! hahaha

I got a youth model .243 Savage with Nikon 3x9 beautiful gun from Browns Guns in Boscobel for $249. Just sayin. Had been fired 5 times. I think I got a sweet deal. Helped Lucas get his buck.

Christmas is still hard in our household. No motivation to go big for the kids. Got Lucas a new pop-up blind, a swivel stool, and a family tradition Buck knife so he can become a man. I also got him a sling for his guns. Then we got him legos. Got our daughter Peyton a bunch of dolls and barbies and an electric scooter. Already took them on the Polar Express which was part of their Christmas gift. For Derek, we paid a couple months rent for a single mom and her 10yr old son and paid their back utilities so that they could stay in their home this Christmas. Someone requested this through our website. We used to sponsor a family every year but 2 years ago the mom asked for all of the gift receipts (even though we got the exact list requested) and returned everything. In Derek's name we also got a family that lost their father (mom and 2 small girls) a waterpark weekend in Dubuque at the Grand Harbor. I have learned that the season is for giving and there are others that need things more than I do. I asked for nothing, but am looking forward to the gifts my kids make for us each year in school. The handprints, the ornaments, the cool stuff. That's all I know.



Longball, what a great thing you do. Through tragedy blessings occur.

I will admit life has taken on a new meaning for me. I awake every day for my children and my wife, as they are what get me through another day. The Acts of Kindness campaign has been a wonderful way to help Derek's legacy move on. It brightens my day and warms my heart every time someone shares an event. It's the first thing I look at every morning, even though there are rarely new posts, just to see how many people the post has reached on there. That is how I see how far his love is spreading.

So Merry Christmas to all of you guys. I hope yours is special and full of loving memories.
