    Prayers needed for my best friend.

    Eight weeks ago my best friend and hunting buddy in the entire world was stricken with Swine Flu.

    There is no rhyme or reason for it, but after eight weeks of being treated in a Miami hospital that specializes with an ECMO life-support protocol, it appears to be in vain and he will likely not pull through. It is expected at any time now. If he were to improve, it would truly be a miracle.

    Sadly, we all have had this happen to our loved ones, and each of us will have our turn; still it's hard to know there is no hope he will recover.

    I would humbly ask any and all of you to say a prayer for my best friend William "Butch" Barnes. No greater friend I could wish him to be.

    The Good Lord will be getting a keeper.

    He's a fine man, and I count myself fortunate to be in his company.

    Thanks for your prayers.
