Well my Tyler moved out Today I didn't want him to but everyman has to do it. I raised him the best I could taught him everything I know how to hunt how to fish, skin a buck, quarter it pack it, catch fish clean em, and right from wrong. He is a good young man and I am proud of him he became a Anderson County Cop last year. I used to take care of him but the last couple year its been the other way around. I got to where I depended on him for alot, but a man got to do what hes got to do. He as close to a son as I ever had and far as I am concerned he is just ant gonna be the same around here. Also lost my helper, weed eater, fishing partner, and hunting partner.

Life goes on I am sure he will still be around. But it is an adjustment when they leave.

I think you are taking it harder than you should.. 20 minutes away is not really that far when it comes to a hunting or fishing partner.. heck.. I have one that lives way farther than that, and it dont slow our hunting or fishing down.. maybe weedeating..yeah.. I thought you meant he moved to chicago or somewhere like that...

It was alot tougher than I thought when the boy moved out on his own. It didn't really hit me, till we had him in his own place, his room was empty and I was alone at home. All you can do is show them the path and hope they follow it.

We stayed in Wisconsin for a year while he was on his own, before coming to TN, just in case. But he seems to be doing alright despite being a Army brat with some crazy a** "uncles".

Now I'm watching him prepare for his first overseas deployment. I always thought I did the things I did so he wouldn't have to and I get sad again.

Jos3ywles it is truely a lonely feeling when they leave. I remember well when our only son left. In fact I have a picture of him getting into his truck on a sunny day after church before driving off to Nashville. My wife was standing beside me and fighting hard to remain composed. I wrote on the picture " Son if you only knew". We both KNEW the feelings we felt.
Now when he pulls in to the drive with wife and kids we KNOW the joy and love.
Life is good with God always at out side. He will never leave us.
Love you man.
