    On May First, my almost constant companion while working on my truck "back home", passed away. My Father in Law, Ed Kelley came down with a sudden illness and lost his battle within 10 days. I probably spent as much time with him as any of his other kids because of our truck project. I'll cherish those times always. I learned a lot from him, mostly before ever working on the truck. Always a hard worker, always willing to help someone who needed it, and always faithful to his family and God. He set an excellent example of how to be a Man. I hope I can live up to that standard.

    I'm very sorry to hear of your loss, Bill. Sounds like he was a great guy, and you're certainly fortunate to have had the time with him that you did. God Bless you and your family, and may your father-in-law rest in peace.

    Bill,
    I came by your space at the Pate swap meet several times on friday but missed connections. Since Pate was almost 20 days ago my first thought was maybe I could have met Ed. I think I would have enjoyed this. My condolences for your loss.

    Thanks for the sympathy, Evan. Sorry we missed each other at Pate. Had to leave abruptly when I found out about my Father in Law. Did you at least get to check out my truck? And talk to the rest of my friends there? I expect to be back in the same place next year, so I guess we'll try again.
    Again, Thanks to all for your expressions of sympathy and words of encouragement.
