            Hello fellow Squawkers........... I need to express first and foremost that I am moved to tears by the outpouring of concern, condolences and general overall best wishes.
            I would never have believed that my contributions to this forum had such a positive impact on so many.
            For the past four days I've been so busy with things to get done and my phone blowing up from many agencies that I really felt like a one legged man in a butt kicking contest at times.
            So this evening my sweetie and I took a break from the grind of trying to account for the losses(40 years of hoarding) and had dinner with my folks to give our minds a rest.
            Prior to heading home my younger brother who lives across the road from Dad asked if I had looked at this thread since I first posted(didn't realize that he had followed me on the Squawk).
            When I said no.......he suggested that I should relax a moment and check it out.

            Out of all the folks that have responded there are 2 that I would like to acknowledge at this time.
            Grady, what can I say..............am for loss of words :Crying:other than to thank you for your initiative with the GFM to help someone you know only by name.
            Alpha, your words of "stay close" have certainly resonated within me that I have determined that I do need to stay connected on a regular basis with this fabulous forum.
            I need to stay connected if nothing more than to give my mind a break from the worries and in the absence of not being able to fly I can still do so vicariously through all the adventures on the "What did you fly today" thread.
            Boots was still beating the Bronco drum but I am the drum major and I need to lead that charge.:Cool:
            So now that my Bronco has met it's expiration date (and many others :Angry:) I do fully expect to be the first one to try out the new FlightLine :ov10 ;)
            Again, thank you everybody for the positive feelings :)

                  Charlie,

                  I am so sorry to read about your loss. I haven't been on Squawk regularly lately, but I am always interested in your posts and what you are up to. My family and I will be keeping your family in our thoughts and prayers.

                    Sorry about your loss Charlie. I hope that things go quickly with the insurance company and you can start trying to rebuild. Glad that it stayed contained and that you and your family are safe.

                                OV10, I have just read about your garage fire and I cannot imagine the physical loss without thanking God you and yours are well. Please accept my thoughts and prayers. Best always, LB

                                          Just wanted to bring a little update in response to Jerry's(Hardway) Hugs to you Charlie!!! Hope your recovery is going OK.... Thanx bro;)

                                          Late last week the physical memories were removed with the most painful being shown below.

                                          This was my 82 FXR that I chopped when I was fighting my first cancer of stage 3 lymphoma and ultimately got printed in Easy Rider
                                          My sweetie has pic of me wearing oxygen mask while sandblasting the frame because chemo was attacking my lungs.
