As I get older I am witness to both the most amazing miracles and tragedies alike. A few weeks ago the surfing world experienced one of the latter as surfing legend Andy Irons died from "Dengue Fever". Andy (for the non-surfers) was a 3 time world champion who was extremely passionate and talented. He could throw huge tantrums when losing or gush in admiration of a fellow competitor. He always seemed to be honest and forthcoming of his thoughts and feelings. My thoughts and prayers are with his family, wife, and unborn child. Although I have never met the man, his death has been hard to stomach for me. I am trying to take what I can from this tragedy which at the moment although it may sound cheesy to some, is this: That I live every day as my last by loving my God, my family, my friends, and even perfect strangers like God intended.

This last weekend Trace and Dena put on an awesome race to benefit Colton's scholarship program. I was real impressed and proud of my family for doing such a bang up job. I also want to thank Jay for taking my place in the race so that I could take a few pics and the Durant Fire Department for allowing me to climb up... the tower truck to grab this image of the start.
