My wife, Judy passed away today. She and I have been married over 25 years. She supported my addiction to fishing. She would ask what I needed to the point of details, so she could buy the right saltwater reel, or tackle. Was kind of funny, one year she asked me what would be a nice reel I could get for you. I told her a gold one!!!

I was hoping for an AVET, Penn International or a Shimano Trinidad. She saw an advertisment in Cabelas saltwater catalog for a Megacast suitable for the saltwater. I did not say a word. I took this reel out to test it on a 1/2 day charter up at La Jolla kelp beds. I hooked into a 1-2 lb Calico bass. As soon as I hooked it, a sea dog ate the bass and I was hooked into 350lb + sea dog. The sea dog ruined the reel, stripped the gears and bent the frame as the deck hand and I tried to get it close enough to cut the line. I brought the reel home and showed her what had happend. She felt really bad. She asked me if she had bought the wrong reel. I said no but an Avet to replace this would be nice. Well the next week I ended up with a 2 speed Blue Avet. What a women, spend $300 on a reel. I will surley miss her. :cry:

Tell her you love her, talk to her often, respect her feelings, be honest. Judy and I would spend long hours on our back patio talking, we rarlely fought. Our backyard is an oasis in the desert so it made for a nice atmosphere. Glass of wine and a cold beer and good conversation.

Jerry,

I can't add much more to what all of our(your) friends have said. You are a very lucky man to have such a fine woman, friend, and partner. Like Daphne said, you are a very blessed man to have so many beautiful years together. My heart is broken for you and I hope that you will call me if you need anything now or in the future. Of course my family's thoughts and prayers go out to you, your son and Judy.

God Bless you and don't forget that you can always count on your friends!

John and Wendy
