You can take the measure of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

I got the call a few minuites ago from Jim Allen, JIM WEBB past on a few minuites before 8:00 AM this morning.
JIM WEBB died peacefully and with dignity, he had no fear of death.
JIM smiled a lot in his final days and got to see most all of his friends.
JIM WEBB is now sliding in the BIG EVERGLADES in the sky and I can see his smile from my pourch.
His JUNK YARD FORD airboat is in good hands and will continue to run JIMS favorite fishing holes along the gulf coast.
I'm proud to have been a part of such a great mans life.
Slide on JIM WEBB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think it is awesome that he could make the ride down and that he drove his boat when he got down here. I hope everyone that is faced with a loved ones last request remember Jim Webb and this trip.

This is such an awesome story. Thanks to Gerald and Mr Webb's family for doing that for him!

More proof that this place is prime habitat for some fine folks.
May God comfort his friends and family in their time of loss. :rebel:
