ďGod, thank you for being with us right now. We confess that we donít understand why things happen the way they do. We donít understand why illness comes into our lives, but we do know that you walk every path of life with us. Remind Chris that you are walking with him right now. Remind Chris that you love him, no matter what he is going through. I also pray for Chrisís family. God, we thank you that you never leave us, that you never forsake us, but you love us. We trust you, and pray this in your name. Amen.Ē[/QUOTE]

Amen! Sorry to hear this.

Tough read, although I have never know Thumper "Chris" personally I have enjoyed his comments and interactions over the last decade. Nothing but a kind guy that was honest in the community.

Prayers sent, rest easy brother until your pain free.

Michael I will lift Chris up

I met Chris several years ago, think his wife was some kind of travel medical work and he was staying at an RV park here.
Like you said he was just like talking to someone you had known for a long time from the get go.

I knew he had some health problems but did not realize he was as bad as you report

Chris was bowhunting before a lot of us were born. A wealth of knowledge. I always enjoyed talking to him.

I only know ol' Thumper on here and over on an old bowfishin' site that he and I used to hang out on, but the descriptions by so many in this thread are spot on! Chris is a man's man and an instant friend to all who know him. He has a kind heart that is full of that Agape love that you asked for Michael. I am sad to hear that his health is failing him, but I rejoice in the new beginning that is to come.


Michael, you are a lot like Chris to me... you seem to be a man's man and a straight up friend and brother in Christ. What you are doing is the Lord's command for us all... Love your neighbor as yourself and you sir are the personification of that and as witness for Him on here and elsewhere. I thank you for that!


Lord sometimes we are not sure what to pray for when we come to You, but You know our hearts and our desires before we ever ask. Lord I pray Your will in Chris's life right now. If it is to heal him and give him years yet here to do Your work, we will rejoice in that. If it is to take him home, Lord we will mourn his earthly passing, but we will shout Hallelujah at his Homecoming! In any case Lord, please give Chris peace and comfort in these days and show him mercy with a fast healing without pain whether earthly or heavenly. Lord, thank You for folks like our brother Michael. Thank You for his heart and friendship's love. Strengthen him and give him guidance on ministering to Chris in these following days of healing. Give him comfort and comfort toward Chris's family. We pray these things through Your Son Jesus Christ our Savior, Amen.

Well crap....I had no idea he was suffering with heath issues. I sold Chris a Glock 27 years ago and met him for dinner to do the exchange while I was in H Town on a business trip. As many have stated he had a way of making me feel like I’d known him all my life. I can’t remember the name of the restaurant we ate at in Tomball that night but I remember our conversations of hunting, bows and firearms.

Thanks for letting us know BH. Prayers for our TBH friend. May peace and grace be his.
