It probably happens every day...

Tragic loss of my Father (Longhorn Tannery)
I am posting this to TBH because I know some of you have had dealings with my father, Alvin Emmel through his business Longhorn Tannery. Both my brother Brian (huntinaddict) and I have been a part of the TBH community for a long time. I want to thank each and everyone of you in advance for your thoughts and prayers.

My family lost a great man yesterday, very suddenly and unexpectedly to a tragic accident. While going to rake hay at a place I'll he has been on for over 25 years he got off the tractor to open the hay field gap. He was using a tractor he has been on 100s, if not 1,000s, of times. Upon getting back on the tractor the gear lock slipped, Dad lost his balance as the tractor began to roll. Tragically he fell beneath the wheel, killing him instantly. He will be truly missed! Please say a prayer for my Mom and the rest of our family and friends.

We lost a local farmer last month to a farm accident. His father also died in a farm accident. And now the son - grandson is taking over the farm which is all he ever wanted to do anyway. But he was forced to go off to college to learn not to farm. It's really weird how somethings in life alter your way.
