My Former Boss and I

Marian took this picture of Reed and I walking across the Beaver Dam at Jasper Bottom Deer Camp Hunting Club in Claiborne County. The road by the swamp was underwater and too deep for the three wheeler to pass through. Reed has since past away and had a military funeral in Southhaven, MS. He was my boss back in Champaign, IL, when working for Humko, before I moved to Vicksburg. After I left IL, Reed had a stroke and had to retired from work. As soon as he was able to get back on his feet, I had invited him to come down to Vicksburg to hunt with us. He did so for several years and we really had a great time hunting together. We became the best of friends and Marian and I miss him very much.
