I love you and goodbye
We will miss you dearly

Conversations on the phone

"A man knocked at the Heavenly Gate,
his face was scarred and old.
He stood before the man of fate,
for admission to the fold.
"What have you done" St. Peter asked,
"To gain admission here?"
"I've been a cowboy, Sir" he said,
for many and many a year".
The Pearly Gates swung open wide,
as St. Peter touched the bell.
"Come in and choose your harp" he said,
"You've had your share"

This tribute was added by Rick Perry on 18th February 2012

"The Bull Rider's Prayer

As I live the Cowboy Way,  
Protection is what I pray,  
I don't know my Fate,  
Outside of the gate.

If my ride sees trouble,
Send Angels on the double,
For in you the Lord I rest,  
Let my life pass your test.

By pure grace I am saved,
Lord, ride with me,

That's the Cowboy Way,
And what bull riders pray."

This tribute was added by Johnny Lee on 18th February 2012

and death is only a horizon;
and a horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight"

Or even chart a journey to a distant blazing star.
But rest assured that when my journey begs to take its cue,
Always know that when I go, this journey takes you too"

"to someone i didn't know so well, i am a close friend of the family, i heard about the tragedy, my condolences to the thrash family *AKA* CHERIX"

This tribute was added by angelia howard on 16th February 2012

"A death in the family leaves a void that cannot be filled. No one can ever take the place of this individual in the world. We should not try to comfort the family by saying that "it was his time anyway", or, "he was suffering". These may be words of comfort later. However, there must be time to mourn the fact that things will never be the same. One minute he was here and now he is gone. The human"

This tribute was added by Guilherme Marchi on 16th February 2012

"When a cowboy rides into the sunset
All he owns is tears and regrets
A buckle or two, his chaps, and vests
A broken heart in a tangled mess
And the memory of the one he left behind
When a cowboy rides"

This tribute was added by Ashley Thrash on 16th February 2012

"And I bless the day I met you
And I thank God that He let you
Lay beside me for a moment that lives on
And the good news is I'm better
For the time we spent together
And the bad news is you're gone"

This tribute was added by Shane Thrash on 16th February 2012

"For some the journey's quicker,
For some the journey's slow.
And when the journey finally ends,
We'll claim a great reward,
And find an everlasting peace,
Together with the lord"

This tribute was added by J N Thrash on 16th February 2012

"Death is a brief separation
A temporary pain
Grieve not my dear
The sun will shine again
Death separates our bodies
But our hearts remain the same
And the memories of our love
Will soothe away your pain
And carry you over
Until we meet again."

This tribute was added by George S on 16th February 2012

"Sometimes it's hard to understand the drift of things. This was a good boy. He'd have been a good man. He didn't get his chance. Death can come for ya any place, any time. It's never welcomed. The only soulist is knowing he is in a better place than this world could ever be!"

This tribute was added by Alex Reese on 16th February 2012

""When we truly love it is never lost
For it is only after death that the
Depth of the bond is truly felt and
Our love one becomes more a part
Of us than was possible in life""

This tribute was added by Sean Gleason on 16th February 2012

"Oh the last goodbye’s the hardest one to say.
This is where the cowboy rides away."

This tribute was added by Ty Murray on 16th February 2012

"Let me be easy on the man that's down;
            Let me be square and generous with all.
        I'm careless sometimes, Lord, when I'm in town,
            But never let 'em say I'm mean or small!
        Make me as big and open as the plains,
            As honest as the hawse between my knees,
        Clean as the wind that blows behind the rains,
            Free as the hawk"

This tribute was added by Steve Dalton on 16th February 2012

"Love is stronger than death even though
it can't stop death from happening,
but no matter how hard death tries it can't separate people from love.
It can't take away our memories either.
In the end, life is stronger than death."

This tribute was added by Cris Weathford on 16th February 2012

"Farewell, dear voyageur - the river winds and turns;
The cadence of your song wafts near to me,
And now you know the thing that all men learn:
There is no death - there's immortality."

This tribute was added by Valerie Holek on 16th February 2012
