  1. I haven’t had the privilege to meet this Christian cowboy but I have had the pleasure of knowing his daughter Kara. Her love for life and the Lord has meant so much to me. So I’m sure the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. . May he rest in peace in God‘s loving arms. I’m sure there is a celebration going on in heaven that’s even bigger than Texas!
    I pray for all of his children and their families. Please be assured that his spirit will forever reside in your hearts.And his memories will bring you much joy.

  3. Our dear Cowboy has ridden off on a pure white stallion wearing a new white, flowing linen robe…STILL following his Savior as JESUS leads him home…annoints his head with oil, serves a banquet of Taco Bell tacos with fiery hot sauce…and…no carrots! His cup overflowing with his favorite iced tea. And…JESUS looks into his eyes and says: “Well done, my son, welcome home. Heaven wants you now more than you’re needed on earth. Welcome home, dear child, welcome HOME!”

  4. Mickey, Shannon and Tory. So sorry for the loss of your Dad/Grandfather. My prayers are with you and all of the family.

  7. Daddy, i have always been so proud of you. You gave us so much. You loved our mother like nobody’s business. You told us stories mostly from the Bible but also from your dad and grandad and the Old West. You took us all kinds of places and always accepted as many friends as we wanted to bring along. You were a hallmark of integrity in all your dealings. You lived your Faith.
