There will never be another.

When I woke this morning I could hear the phone beep and I knew I had a message, but I didn't get to it right away. His mother had called me but it was staticy and I couldn't understand her. There had been a call from Rich's phone too and texted back "r u ok?" because the call had been at like 6 in the morning.

Gene called me back and he could hardly talk and he told me and managed to get out that Rich had told him if anything had ever happened to him he needed to let me know "So I'm doing what he asked"

by CellarDweller




the very last two posts in the long ago thread:


It was a womderful time!
Getting to meet Jeff, John, Meryl, Kelly And everyone else was an honor and a pleasure!
Yet another memory stored deep in my heart!
Who would have thought a story about two cowboys would bring so many people together!
Like I always say, "Thank you Ennis for showing me the way"  ;D



Well a hell of a weekend, wasn't it?  ;D

Don Wroe's cabin, September 2008, Fairstone Park, VA.  I had given Rich this Tshirt as a joke.

How can this happen to such a wonderful man who finally found his great life ? It's not fair.

Chuck if you get more details about what happened please let me know so I can try and make some sense on this.


As soon as I hear anything, I promise I will post it on here and DCF.

God, I'm such a wreck right now.

If you've sent me a PM, please don't think I'm ignoring you.  I just don't have any more information at the moment, and I don't want to make a bad situation worse by saying something that may not be true.

As soon as I hear from Gene, I will post the information.


Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

Rich sent me a real (snail-mail!) Christmas Card last December, and I was so touched. This is what was printed in the card:

A COWBOY'S CHRISTMAS PRAYER
By S. Omar Barker (1894-1985)

I ain't much good at prayin', and You may not know me, Lord-
I ain't much seen in churches where they preach Thy Holy Word,
But you may have observed me out here on the lonely plains,
A-lookin' after cattle, feelin' thankful when it rains,
Admirin' Thy great handiwork, the miracle of grass,
Aware of Thy kind spirit in the way it comes to pass
That hired men on horseback and the livestock we tend
Can look up at the stars at night and know we've got a friend.

So here's ol' Christmas comin' on, remindin' us again
Of Him whose coming brought good will into the hearts of men.
A cowboy ain't no preacher, Lord, but if You'll hear my prayer,
I'll ask as good as we have got for all men everywhere.
Don't let no hearts be bitter, Lord.
Don't let no child be cold.
Make easy beds for them that's sick and them that's weak and old.
Let kindness bless the trail we ride, no matter what we're after,
And sorter keep us on Your side, in tears as well as laughter.

I've seen ol' cows a-starvin, and it ain't no happy sight:
Please don't leave no one hungry, Lord, on thy good Christmas night-
No man, no child, no woman, and no critter on four feet-
I'll aim to do my best to help You find 'em chuck to eat.

I'm just a sinful cowpoke, Lord-ain't got no business prayin'-
But still I hope You'll ketch a word or two of what I'm sayin':
We speak of Merry Christmas, Lord-I reckon you'll agree
There ain't no Merry Christmas for nobody that ain't free.
So one thing more I'll ask You, Lord: Just help us what you can
To save some seeds of freedom for the future sons of man.

Merry Christmas, everyone, and good night.



I've got to go and cry in the shower now.

This is too much.
