If someone should ask for me, tell 'em heaven is where I'll be. I've finished all my life's chores, and now I fish on heaven's shores. The view is grand and the fishing's great, but I yearn for you as I wait. I'll save a spot on the river's bend, for all those I call family and friend. But for now head to the Manistee and make a cast in memory to all the good times that you had, with me - your friend, your grandpa...your dad. And if the fish no longer bite or seem no longer worth the fight, 'cause it's me that you are missin', don't worry - be happy - I've gone fishin'. - David Ritter.
