That is a touching story and a great tribute to a fine lady. I live in SE TN, about an hour from Monteagle. The mountain is a landmark for that area. Driving I-24 both ways gives awesome views. Thanks for sharing that story and the photos. Our thoughts for you and the family.

I am saddened by your story and her struggles I pray that she is at peace. And that you can only think of the good times.Your project just show's the caring and the unconditional love you felt for her.And to have a friend to have helped in the way he did also shows how much she was loved. May she rest in peace and you sir may you have peace in your heart till you meet here again .

It is more beautiful now than I remember. May your love and Linda's beauty be your guiding light until you see her again.

How powerful, I can only imagine the amount of tears and love given, what a beautiful gift.  

May she rest in peace.

Keep your chin up Rick!  No words anyone here has to say can make the pain go away.  You have friends here to lean on if you need it bud!

It's all good. We do have a good group of folks here.      When are you coming to Tennessee?

I agree with Kev. And she is the one that convinced you to move out of the 9’ x 12’ shop you were able to produce some remarkable pieces and  into a shop that we would all be proud to have. Now git your ass out there and make some sawdust and make her proud(er). You have my phone number as well if you need to talk or even ask how to sharpen those darn chisels of yours. :D you’re on on the road to recovery bud, albeit a long one.

As they say in game shows that I get to see in Dr's waiting rooms................Come on down.  Your'e welcome at any time.  It's a tad more than a couple hundred miles from West Memphis, add another 150 from Little Rock.

Talking about the strength to carry on and doing it are very hard things to do my friend, very few here have walked in your shoes, but you are strong and that lovely lady is watching and pulling for you as we all are, this is a great bunch, reach out when you need to, I’m with Coop, sawdust therapy can help.

My exact location and available time frame will determine if I'm able to but, I'll scratch a few days on the list just in case.

Kev, if you smoke and rent from Hertz from Nashville, they charge $400 for cleanup. I know for a fact! :ph34r:

Non smoker so, good to go there..

Rick, the story you have shared of your life with Linda is beautiful and I'm honored to have heard it. 

Though the memories will never fade the pain will dull in the fullness of time.

Rick, just a note to let you know that you are still in my prayers. I can't imagine the pain you are going through but I pray that each day it gets easier for you to replace the sadness with happy memories.
