All the best from the tropics. Before Anna and I arrived, we had the opportunity to have lunch with Jim Copland who informed us. We were both shocked at the news of the passing of your father. He was a fine example of a true southern gentleman who loved the fine things in life and he received some of his greatest joy by treating and sharing those things with the ones he loved. It was my pleasure to help bring some value along the way.
He loved being a part of it all, even and especially if that meant sitting in a porch chair watching the storm instead of being out in the storm. He took things at his own pace and enjoyed every minute of life and every fish. It was not a competition for him and all the guides loved fishing with him.
I am so sorry for your sudden loss and my heart reaches out to you.
