    My uncle Thomas Shockman died today of cancer - he was 87. Like my father (and his 12 brothers and sisters), he was a farmer first, a husband and father, and an all-around good guy. I will miss you Thomas.

    Here is a clip from 1987, one with my father and his brothers and sisters talking about growing up on the farm in LaMoure, ND. My uncle is the first one in the clip, and my father Ken (who passed away Nov. of 1992) is the one about halfway through, wearing glasses, a vest and a light blue/green bow tie and cummerbund.

    Hope you all pardon my indulgence in remembering him, and my father...These guys really knew how to tell stories...

    Shock, it is an honor to have you share this little snippet of the lives of two (obviously) great men who had a hand in making you the great guy that you are today.
    Hopefully both he and your dad will be looking down from above when our Vikings finally reach the Promised Land.
    My condolences to you and all of the rest of the Shockmans.
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    Thanks for sharing the clip my friend.
    The loss of men from that era cannot be fathomed, however, it is lessoned abit if they shared that wisdom with thier next generation.
    From the little I know of you, me thinks he will continue to live on.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
