Default RIP George

I just learned that a young PH that I knew well has died. We have walked many miles together through the thorn brush of Botswana and spent long evenings talking beside a fire. His name was George Kyriacou and he was only 37. It seems ironic that after all of the dangerous game hunting that he has done (mostly elephant) that it was a perforated ulcer in an airplane that killed him. I really liked George and am deeply saddened by this news. That "next trip" that we spoke about will never happen.

I know that nobody here knew him, but I was hoping that posting about it would make me feel a bit better somehow.

I think we all have hunting buddies, family, and Friends that will no longer be able to enjoy the woods with us. We're left with the memories, and hopefully the important things that they taught to us.

Sorry to hear about your friend.
