    Thanks again for the kind words.
    The name plate came and now it is on display for folks to see. Have had some good feedback from it. Even had a few folks come just to see at after talking to a friend about it.
    Got 2 calls this week from one of our displays we have in a sport shop. It sure pays to get a few pieces out for folks to see.
    Good luck to all this season. Hope it is a busy year for you all.

    LordRusty If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

    Well, thanks to Bonnie, I've now had a chance to view your post.

    What a wonderful way to pay tribute to the man who so shaped your life. Kudos to a job well done! It's tough when they have to "go." My Pop's passing was pretty life changing for me, and that was in 1998, but I miss hearing his voice over the phone every single day. You can get past it, but never get over it. At least not for me. In fact I've just reread my post I placed in the old forums again, and it brought it all back. :'(

    Just know that your Dads spirit is aware of the great tribute you've made in his honor. You done good, Mason ... you done good! ;)

    Thank you all,
    Seein this post back up this morning really put a lump in my throat!
    They say that man will never be gone as long as I walk the earth. I dont think I could even have packed his sweat in a days time. But folks around here say i am a carbon copy.
    I appreciate the kind words from all of you. It was a hard piece to work on.
    And yeah John, I am dealing with it, but will never get over it. These long winter days. I think on him a lot.

    Thank you for bringing this back Bonnie.
    That's a very nice piece Ron.

    We never get over it. Trust me, I know. But at the same time, we never forget and that's what really counts.

    remember folks every piece should have a name, date when killed by whom etc right there on the back of every mount. Tell your customers to have it there. In the future there will be many stories that will never be known unless there is something to identify these pieces by as such with that story

    On all the shoulder mounts that we do. We take packaging tape and tape the tags to the backs of the mounts. Trim the tape nice and even around them, nice and clean looking. Makes it look almost laminated to the backboard.
  19. Thats beautiful, and a very sweet Idea!
