A lot has been happening Lucky as you know, the Lucky Dog Sports Bar has closed recently, but I know your happy because the guys and gals have done real well to relocate. I saw Robert Holland recently and he looks good Lucky, he's been doing real well it looks like. I miss you and I know Robert does too Lucky! Im still trying to do the dart thing, but its gotten a bit tougher and things ain't what they used to be. Im real happy to tell you, I have made it back to Nationals in steel tip. Just finished winning my second Regional Championship in a row! In the last year that makes me two for two in the Winmau Masters National Championship, with the oppurtunity again to make the United States Team and represent us, and the USA in England at the Winmau International Masters Tournament. My game has really taken off recently but it also seems The road gets tougher and still their is no recognition. Everyone else has been recognized but me, but you know my heart Lucky and I tell it is just driving me more harder until the whole world knows and sees my darts. I wont rest until Im the best. Best in the state and best in the Country. I love you, and I need you, and I keep you in my heart when im shooting buudy, you are forever loved and missed, and I dropped in to say hello again. Until we meet again brother...

My Friend it's been a year since you left us, but I'm knowing now that your more closer to all of our hearts now than you've ever been, I think of you often, I still shoot darts in your honor, and I wanted to share with you that I made it to a 14 as a player in medalist and I remember you always, and Thankyou for showing me the way. I miss you, forever loved and missed in my heart.

Received from Alisha W. ------------------------------------------------- I just wanted to leave my condolences and a comforting scripture. John 5:28 reads- 'Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." This speaks of a resurrection of our dead loved ones. I know you don't know me but you and the family will be in my prayers.

Lucky, You will be missed! You never had a negative word to say. Your kindness was always noticed! My the Lord Bless you and Keep you!

I don’t even know where to begin. We think we have all this time but we don’t, we just never know. I will miss you, I already miss you. I will miss our talks our laughs. I’ll miss you saying “Hey girl”……..I always felt we had a special connection we understood each other without words spoken. I’ve always admired your strength through all your trial & tribulations. You always had such a good attitude. You’d say I’ll get through it I’m not worried, I always do. I hope you know how much I loved you and always will. I know all our family was there to greet you as you walked through the gates. Until we meet again on the other side my friend, my Uncle I love you forever & always!! Missed but never forgotten. "Savor the moment, for at the blink of an eye it becomes a memory." Love you, your niece Tami XXOO

My darling Lucky, I am still in shock. I miss you so much. I wasn't ready...you weren't ready. A gentle soul gone way too soon. You were a kind and proud man. One anyone and everyone was proud to call their friend. For me, you always made everything ok. You made sure I was taken care of. You went above and beyond for me and well for anyone you would call a friend. Love and miss you for life, Lucky.

Lucky, you were my buddy, my business partner, the guy that new me better than anyone except Diane. We had some great times. I beat you down that water slide but you were one tough dude. What a set of fun times in our lives. You were the best. Nothing can replace the void where you resided in my life. I wish the last few years could have been better for you, although you were a trooper. Our bar, your bar, was and is what you made it with Diane and me. I am so very proud to have been a part of your dream come true when we bought and built Lucky Dog Sports Bar. Take care my friend. You are missed, but will never be forgotten. Love you Buddy.

Well, it's been a week. It still doesn't seem real, I find myself picking up the phone to call you and it hits me all over again. I know you are in a better place but that doesn't make your loss any less. We've had such a close relationship over the past 3 years, lots of ups and downs but through it all you know I loved you like a brother. I am so glad that we got to see you and that I was able to tell you how much you meant to me. I didn't know it at the time but it was so important. I love you and will miss you forever. Until we meet again, Rest in Peace.
