Andrew, so sorry for the loss. The whole family will be in our prayers during this very trying time.

Ron & Paula
I bought an old tractor all dusty and worn,
knew nothing about her just the year she was born
I washed her and greased her and painted her red
Now she lives happily right here in my shed.

Dear Andrew,

I have been gone alot since Stonethrow and just saw your sad and painful news. I know you are hurting bud, and our thoughts and prayers are with you and with Michael's family.

My young friend, do not be troubled that you cannot understand God's ways. You just never know. I prefer to consider, that when one of these mysteries arises, it must be because God needed one of Michael's special qualities there with him in Heaven. The rest of your understanding--or is it acceptance?--must come from the faith which your parents and circle of friends have helped you develop over your young and promising life.

So what do you do now? You already know. Everything within your power to reasonably assist Michael's family in their current time of need. Work hard now to sear all the positive memories you have of Michael into your heart, and he will live with you always. But be gentle in helping the family move from their current darkness to a time where they can think of those memories and smile...be patient and trusting in the Lord, and you will know when and how to help.

I found this old Cub, Forgotten and Forlorn,
With pistons and valves frozen and worn.
Help from my buddies on Farmallcub.com,
And an engine from Ralph, (37’s the one),
Now ole Corky is running and back to life,
Much to the surprise of my dear, dear wife!
