Such a sad day, I am sorry we can't attend his service today, if anyone is attending they might print these emails and give them to his family. Such great testimonials may give them some comfort.
We birded with him on several occasions at Red Slough, he was alway kind and as excited as we were about everything we found spending his whole day with us. He always said that was what he would be doing anyway-out birding and communing with nature. A great way and rewarding way to spend your time!
He will be missed!

So sorry and sad to hear this about Ford. Such an enthusiastic and sharing man.
Ford Hendershot passed away last Wednesday night in his sleep. He was diagnosed with stage 4 Pancreatic cancer about three weeks earlier. Ford was a forest service volunteer who helped give tours at Red Slough. Many of you know Ford from going on his tours. Ford was also an avid ebirder. His Celebration of Life will be tomorrow (Monday) at 2:00 p.m. in Idabel at the United Methodist Church.
