I'm sad to report that a friend to many of us on this board, Dave Rainey, lost his battle with MS sometime Weds, night. After contracting MS a few years ago, he and his family moved back to Missouri to be closer to family. Evidently Dave did not wake up thursday morning, May 1st. I do not know any more details, since I was informed of this through a mutal friend of mine and Dave's. Dave was an active member of the MBCF and an excellent fisherman,.....he had to quit fishing and sell his boat and tackle when his failing eyesight became a "safety issue" and they needed money for medical bills....MS is a nasty disease,....striking him in his 40's!! Please keep Dave and his family in your thoughts and prayers. Peace Dave,..we will miss you!
