    Just to let everyone know that my good friend fellow former Buckeye Mannikins worker, Josh Calai passed away tonight from a tough fight with cancer, he was just 33 years old. Some of you might remember his name, Josh Calai. He worked with me in the shipping department at Buckeye Mannikins. If you called to place an order,had a question or came to pick up an order, you more than likely talked or met Josh & I. Josh even traveled to some state shows with me to set up our booth. The last show he went with to was the Illinois show and had a really great time. I know he really got a kick out Yox when bill would come down. So please keep his family in your thought and prayers.
    Thanks for listening to my rammbling on, its been a long day.

    Thanks Bulldog and Michael for your thoughts and prayers.

    Also if anybody from Research Mannikins reads this , please pass this on to Randy at the Illinois plant. Josh really like Randy and Dan Beasley ( when he worked there) !!! Also if someone could pass it on to Jody Green. I think Josh only got to meet Jody once, when I bought a painted turkey feather that Jody had painted on. Jody might not remember Josh, but Jody left a great impression on Josh and he always remember him.

    Boy I just hate to hear things like this. Im figuring on living to a hundred, I have that much stuff to do, and Id have pitched in a few of MY years if others could have too, just for Josh. Damn why cant we donate like that, instead of organs? Josh was just a real nice person, sorta all of what I love about people from Ohio and the midwest. This really bugs me...it just aint right.

    Maria and I have him in our prayers. These kind of things remind me that tommorrow is not guaranteed, and to live your life right and to the fullest while you can. And never miss an opportunity ti take a child or friend hunting or fishing. Those are some of the best times you could ever share.
