"A little while and I will be gone from among you,

whither I cannot tell. From nowhere we come, into

nowhere we go. What is life? It is a flash of firefly

in the night. It is a breath of a buffalo in the wintertime.

It is as the little shadow that runs across the grass

and loses itself in the sunset.”

— Chief Crowfoot

  3. So sorry for your loss. I will always remember Tank as the young boy who used to come stay at our house for sleepovers. We would play WWE with him, Brook, and Leander attacking me and I would try to gently repel their efforts. I don’t recall if he was Hulk Hogan or the Ultimate Warrior. I just remember him as a little guy who was full of life. Rest in peace Tank.
