Good morning LJ’s,
This morning I bring the sad news that our fellow LJ Duane Moore has gone to his eternal home.I had sent several PM’s to Duane to see how he was and received no answer I found This article Sunday on the wood whisperer http://thewoodwhisperer.com/remembering-duane-moore/.
Duane Had been fighting cancer for years but what made him great was his outlook and his faith, he never really focused on the bad things he always talked about God’s healing abilities or Spent his time encouraging other LJ’s, building projects and being with his family. Now I could never imagine being given a certain time to live or even truly realizing the true suffering he went through, as many of you may or may not know I recently lost one of my close co- workers to cancer. I know two things, 1. tomorrow is never promised to us 2. We need to live the present day as if it was our last. If you are thinking of doing something great, mending broken relationships, or buying that new tool (if you can afford it ) DO IT!!! Saying you will won’t get it done. We are always given a new day every day God blesses us to wake up, use it to your fullest extent. life is short very short .
Enough preaching I am putting out several challenges in memory of Duane
1. Anyone who was Duane’s buddy or got to know him,
The next project you build dedicate it to him,
The second part is if this is a commissioned piece or if you sell it Donate 10% to either Duane’s website or woodworker fighting cancer.
2. If you have a website for your business or personal Place the badge from woodworkers fighting cancer on it ( mine should be up in a couple of weeks) to help spread the word.
I hope that you LJ’s will step up to the challenge with the same fire in your hearts that Duane had.
This week I will also be adding the logo from Marc’s website to my marketing material to also spread the word and promote this.
As I close I will suggest watching the entire video series on Duane’s steamer trunk also.
What Marc and his wife, along with the guild was a great and kind selfless act that we should all be able to do.
