Found Out Some Bad News Today..:(
« on: May 01, 2008, 01:18:58 PM »


For a couple weeks now a hand full of us older members of the GTA have been missing someone. We have asked each other through different PM's about where Ed aka Shadow has been hiding. We all assumed he has been busy with his new job. For some of you that do not know Ed, he is one of the original members of the GTA. Has supported us and made hundreds and hundreds of contribution through post andsharing hisknowledgeand skills that he knows with others. He has shared with all of us from the beginning.

I finally made contact with Ed today. It turns out he has been suffering from some very severe headache's since his move to Michigan last month. So these headache's have pretty much laid Ed up. You have to know Ed to know that he stays busy constantly hunting an working on his babies in his shop. Well that has not been the case in the last month. Between the headaches and work he has been pretty laid up. Not much time hunting or time spent on the GTA.

Ed did not want to complain and held off going to the doctor until his wife insisted. After all the blood work and scan's it seems that Ed has a golf ball size tumor in his brain on the front right side. Ed will go for his first treatment of radiation on Monday and continue with this treatment until the tumor is gone. I just want to say that Ed has become a very close friend of mine and many other's here on the GTA. I hope you all find it in your heart to pray for Ed and a speedy recovery. He is a big part of the GTA family. He has a fantastic optimistic attitude and says this is just another bump in the road... He just wants to keep doing his thing, which is hunting and air guns.



Please say a prayer for Ed..........

Maybe the move was to be near that special doctor that's going to be the one that with Prayers and God's help, will help our friend through this. I believe there's a reason for everything in our lives. kirby

Ed.... My prayers are with you and just pray to him that has the power to heal. Life can deal us some tough cards sometimes but the Lord always holds the upper hand and can do wonders. I for one knows this. I have seen his wisdom and  his powers in the last couple of years. Just believe and put your trust in him.
