Four Years Ago, Today

markabell2We lost MARK BELL.

My co-worker, shooting student, sounding board, reminder of things good, bon vivant, and loyal friend.

We had just attended Kevin Baker’s blogshoot the previous Sunday, and had spoken on the telephone, yesterday (four years ago – I cannot believe it’s been four years!).

Then his beloved wife Cathy called me tomorrow (four years ago) to tell me he had dropped dead from a heart attack suddenly yesterday.

Having almost lost Walter recently, this may be a little maudlin.

I don’t care.

PLEASE, tell the ones you love that you love them, and hug them, if at all possible.

Because you never know.

  1. I know how that goes. I lost a close friend to a sudden heart attack back in July. He was my shooting buddy and friend. He helped me to properly maintain my guns. I helped him to learn new things about concealed carry, knives and flashlights. We had many in depth discussions about a number of things. Gone but forgotten.
