Caution is needed with your passion....

Tonight it is with heavy hearts that a relative has passed.

James Swanson was a jolly guy in his mid 50's.

Jim was an avid outdoors man and Deer Hunting was is passion.

Sadly, Jim was leaving his stand last night when one of the steps let loose.

Jim fell and broke his neck.  He didn't survive.

Jim was not a careless person.  I know he checked his stand out before season with a couple other hunters of his group.  They checked all the stands for safety.

Sadly, Jim was a very large man, and for what ever reason the step didn't hold up.

 

Please, when enjoying your passion, keep it as safe as possible.

 

Jim left behind a wife, and other family members.

Please pray for the family for strength
