Passing of a friend

Postby beaconlight » Sun Sep 09, 2007 7:46 pm

Al Cobb of Waterloo NY died of cancer. Bev and I went to his funeral. Al was 92 year old on Aug 4. He started farming on Long Island in the depression. He goes back to the horse and mule days. I met him Al 1973. He taught me much about animals. Al had 468 Beef and over 100 horses, poneys plus a mule when I first met him. He taught me to ride, drive and disc with a team. wire bales was the theropy that got my left shoulder working after surgery and if no more than that I owe him big time. I last visited Al in January on my way home from the get together in Jims heated shop.
I could go on and on to the point of boring every one. I will miss my very good friend.

Bill, Our sympathies to you and to Al's family. He sounds like a heck of a guy! I can understand why you will miss him.

Sounds like he was a great teacher and physical therapist. Our thoughts are with you and his family.



If you can't find it, don't lose it.

Sorry to hear about the loss of your friend. Sounds like he was one of those rare types of people anymore. My thoughts are with you.
