A loss in the family
« on: January 28, 2009, 06:32:49 PM »
I've just found out today that my uncle suffered a gun accident around 10 am today following a duck hunt; and was killed. An eyewitness said he was unloading the guns from the trunk when he tripped and the gun went off...he just had his birthday last saturday...if you want more information, just google up something from Portland Oregon.

My sympathies.
“The boat dipped and swayed and sometimes took on water, but it did not sink; the two brothers had waterproofed it well. I do not know where it finally fetched up, if it ever did; perhaps it reached the sea and sails there forever, like a magic boat in a fairytale. All I know is that it was still afloat and still running on the breast of the flood when it passed the incorporated town limits of Derry, Maine, and there it passes out of this tale forever.” ― Stephen King, It"
