our deepest sympathies for his family and friends that knew him well
He will be greatly missed and he leaves a hole in this world that can never be filled
Now he is tending to the lords herd in the sky with all of the other great cowmen that have passed before him
Amen, Idamans thread was by far the most interesting I have ever read on any forum. A gracious and humble man. I wish I would have had the honor to meet him in person. May God bless his family and watch over them in this time of loss. He will be missed.

While our association wasn't long, it was a very good one. I am shocked and saddened to hear of the passing of this innovative, interesting cowman and family man.
Rest in Peace Tom Hook.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P9Fyey4D5hg

Life is tenuous at best-if anybody brings the cowboy's prayer to mind it was Idaman-just thankful we got to share some of his adventures.

What terrible news to read this morning, I have enjoyed reading his entries, one of the best threads ever. God bless his family and Idaman for sharing parts of his life with us.
I'm not afraid of hard work, I can lay down next to it and fall asleep without a problem.

Upon this life you will find that one person
who's hand you want to shake
Who has through the travels of life
finds the humor and joy
That brings laughter and knowlegde
for all to share
We will miss you Idaman for all
But you have found a greater joy
and we will see you soon.

Very sad news indeed, I was so looking forward to seeing his progress with those unique bloodline cows he bought and flushed, hope someone can continue his work and ideals. Everyone from Hoekland Herefords have the Hook family in our thoughts and prayers.

thats for sure, and for some, including me.. as close to a real cowboy/ cattleman as you can get, i figure we are the lucky one's. but what away to go still doing what you loved
someone said I should follow my dreams,,so I went back to bed...
