    I just wanted everyone to know that Bruce Anderson from Texarkana, Tx. died this week form a brain anuresym. He was one of my best freinds and a VERY talented taxidermist as well as fish and bird woodcarver. One of the best I have known. He worked for me for 4 years and then went out on hios own. I'm kinda having a bad day today . Got the call this morning. I loved him like a brother and I will miss him dearly. He probably wasn't known too much outside of Texas, but his 3 boys could really use your prayers right now. thanks, Ron

    Just wanted to say thanks for all the comments and prayers for the family. Now trying to get thru the logistical nightmare of his Taxidermy shop. He had a 1 year backlog and had freezers full of personal stuff , as well as supplies and tools. As soon as i and a couple others can do an inventory, I will post what is available for sale and maybe I can get some extra money for the boys. The mother passed 5 years ago and there iwas no Life Insurance.. The funeral was today and was very sad for the boys. I will keep you posted on what we can do to help them later. Right now, they don't have anything but personal stuff. Thanks again , Ron
  16. Ugh Ron Im so sorry to hear this.

    There is no rhyme or reason to some things. Ron, I hope Mr. Anderson's sons will remember the amazing things about their Dad and that the pain of his death will ease with time. Bless you all.

    Josh...my thoughts are with you & the family of your friend as well. Heck of a thing.
