    Got a barrel from him today. Talked to him about two weeks ago with never any indication there was any thing was wrong. In fact I believe he said he was looking forward to his first match this year. This comes as a sad surprise. He always treated me right.

    Seems his sick feelings were a week or so ago and his initial thought was bad tuna fish.

    I called the shop this morning and they said he was at home and it was a heart attack. I guess it makes little difference as he is gone. It reminds me that all we have is today. Will miss our conversations.

    Sad to hear. My condolences.
    Always like to hear from a person's friends and stories....

    20 yrs ago while working out of state. One of the fellas, thought he got a bad Seafood salad sub. He looked terrible. We were only pulling some cable.
    We could not decide when to drive home(Friday 5-6 hr drive.). So I went and got lunch for everyone.
    Glad we waited and were not on I-75N. Marty and Garry might have been an accident....my sub was okay.
    And Marty was lucky. Fairly new Fire station 3 miles and trained Paramedics. They told him to lay down and relax. Never tell someone that....
    So he got blasted twice.
    He was a local hero for taking 2 shots and living.....The Paramedic's first in a year. That location was full of really old folks....
    He asked me. Does it always hurt when you get blasted? I told him ya got to quick. But, if you are laying down. Yea. It hurts...which is a good thing...
    Just a story.
