Carl Cooper my uncle went home to be with the Lord in March of this year.  He was an incredible influence in my life both in being a cowboy and more importantly a man of God.  I am filled with joy knowin' that he is with the Lord and I will seen again some day.

Douglas~ I am so sorry to hear about 'Fritzer', I too lost a beautiful family member(s) as well...

Me & my dads dog  'Rocky' also passed.. He did everything with me so he was top dog on the ranch. As he got older he wanted to stay on the ranch instead of traveling with me. I felt better knowing my dad has great company!!  After 13 yrs he is having a great time with the our Lord! My grandmother passed then grandpa. It was a tough few years. I am so joyed the Lord holds my heart! I have grown in all ways, learned alot, plus expanded my horizon of how much we can change with the Lords guidance and having the faith to step out of your comfort zone. In a moment everything can be gone, I know also in another moment we grow leaps and bounds with just a small amount of faith.... I am so Thankful

  My grandparents were great Cowboy & Cowgirl, dairy ranch owners ~ I have ever met..

They are having a wonderful time now!!

God Bless Each of You!!

2 years ago we lost a great cowboy. Mr Batty was a full time rancher, father and rodeo announcer. I had the privilege of shaking his had and coming to know him through his son and daughter. I worked with his daughter Carli Jo Baty. One of the best cowgirls in college rodeo and a sweet person. He was remember last year at the Wendy Wood Memorial Rodeo with the tradition horse with empty saddle riding the arena as a letter from his daughter was read to her "Daddy".. What a great man gone on to ride with his Lord.

I had to put my dog "Fritzer" down on March 15th.  For 14 years him and I were inseperable.  We went and did everything together.  I miss him greatly; espcially when we would head out for our different events to attend.  He was a great traveling buddy.  But I know that him and the Lord are havin a great time together now<):o}

Myn husband,Randy has been gone for almost 13 yrs. now, and it still feels like yesterday. He can never be replaced, but at some point I would like to feel that I can move on...

Billie Bee Andrews Parker Hatton 78, passed on Oct 2009, my beloved mother. I grew up with Horses because of her Love for Horses and God. She always showed us great care for our brothers, sisters, family, and all the animals we had all around us. What a beautiful cowgirl who has gone home to her eternal resting place. God was so good to have picked this little cowgirl for our mom.

Jay Dee Parker 82 , my earthly father, passed on May 1, 2010. He was a great horseman and taught me how to ride in 4 H, rodeos, parades along with many trail rides in Phoenix, AZ when I was young among camping, fishing, hunting, boating. I sure miss this old cowboy in my life.

Old Christian Cowboys Never Die"..They only take an eternal ride with our Lord ..

LeRoy Watts, age 87, of  Verona, Missouri departed this life on Sunday, Feb. as 13th. 2011.....LeRoy was a fine Christian Cowboy and a nationaly known Cowboy Poet and Author.
Everyone loved LeRoy he never met a stranger and he was truly love in return by everyone....He performed on all of the big cowboy event stages and was a real gentelman of his art.

His passing left a void that all of his friends including myself will never be able to lfill.....for if it is true that if a man can count his friends on one hand and be richer for it, than LeRoy was the richest of us all.
