Words cannot express the sense of loss and sadness Mrs. Dutchman and I feel over the passing of our Beloved Pastor and Shepherd, Fiddlesticks. The eternal value of the teaching and counsel that we have received in the last year, since being a part of his congregation, is beyond measure. Bro. Sticks not only served as our Pastor, but we have also come to count him and Sister Sticks as our DEAREST of friends. A friendship that will be forever cherished, and will thankfully continue on in eternity.
Bro. Sticks will be greatly missed, but we take comfort and rejoice in the fact that, as you read this, he is where he has longed to be, worshipping at the feet of his Blessed Saviour and Lord, Jesus Christ.
We love you Sister Kathy, and know this, that you and Casey are always in our hearts and prayers.
1Thessalonians 4:13-18
Bro. and Sister Dutchman, Mark and Hollie Poley

Now I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I will get to meet Mr. 'Sticks someday. Thanks Dutchman for posting

Well, my ol' friend Fiddlesticks come up to Corn Patch and stopped by the shop. Had made a pistol for his Dad. Got a couple of photos of him while he was botherin' me and we had a good time in general. I'll share them with you here. My favorite is him slippin' through the screen door with boxes of Moon Pies and ol' DanL's Diet Rite Cola stacked up to his chin! We used to pester each other somethin' fierce and get Volatpluvia involved (git him to tell you about Pinky the Skink and Terry's white tennis shoes some day) and we had as much fun as three baby coons being give a raw egg apiece. I'm sorry to see'im go for now, but friends is friends, no matter where they go or what they do, so's he's still with us. Love you, Brother.

My heart is heavy and on the ground. Terry was the first guy in the camp to welcome me when I joined, and we just hit it off from there. We traded some books back and forth, and shared some really good conversations. Any time I checked in to the Camp, his stories and comments were always the ones that I would read first. What a wonderful man, you could tell he was a true gentleman right off. I sure will miss his stories, his humor, his friendship, and his sage and caring advice.

My hat is off to ya Mr. 'Sticks, and my heart and prayers go out to you Mrs. 'Sticks and your family. He will be sorely missed. Heaven will have a new master storyteller, and one heck'uva good man.

I first read this post very early this morning. Shocked and confused, along with a profound sense of loss all hit at once. It seemed so unreal. Ol'Sticks and I had never met yet I personally felt I had a friend in him, which I believe several here did as well.
So sorry for your loss, he was a man who will most surely be missed.
Rest easy my friend, and keep watching that skyline.

This is truely sad news for those of us left behind. I will miss him. It was always a pleasure to start some banter with that witty lad. He will regale all the folks in heaven with his tall tales. They will be rolling around on those golden streets holding their sides in pain from laughing so hard. Not to be morbid, but what took him from us? Volatpluvia

I, too, am shocked and saddened. I never met Fiddlesticks, but considered him a friend, also. Blessings to his family and close friends.

Hello Volie,

I called your number and left a message, hope you got it. There is an article in the Harrison, AR newspaper.

Terry was out riding his bike ol'Silver and was less than 5 minutes from home when he had a wreck with the bike. Front wheel is severely bent and the tire off the rim, he was pitched off. Mrs 'Sticks doesn't know yet if Terry had a cardiac event or passed out just before the wreck.

I also called Audie's number and left a message for him. Don't know if he got it. If you have his email addy, would you drop him a line?

We are all going to miss him for sure.

Regards, xfox

Getting ready to go to work last night and noticed the answering machine flashing. The message from CrossFox broke my heart. Fiddlesticks was my friend, a confidant and a pastor to me. He came to me during one of the rough patches in my life. His friendship changed me more than he will ever know. He drove all the way from Arkansas to baptize me in the crick yonder, with the aid of fellow friend and pastor Leon Buckwalter....aka Volatpluvia. I have no doubt I am only one of many he has guided in such matters. His writings had a depth to them that I have never seen before and likely will not see again. To Kathy and son, and family, know that I am with you in spirit and offer you my heartfelt condolences. Crossfox, I'll call when I regain my composure but for now the tears simply won't stop. Audie...the Oldfart.

Mrs. Fiddlesticks, my condolences. Even though I never met him, I feel like I lost a friend. Will miss his stories greatly.

Thank you all so very much... reading the posts you wrote about Fiddlesticks is so very heart touching. He indeed was one of the best men on the face of the earth. His writings, sermons and wisdom never failed to amaze me. If EVER a man made it to Heaven.... I believe this man did. Some how Sticks had left his computer logged onto the site and we have been able to post.... Not knowing his pass word this could be my last post. Thanks to all of you for being his friends! I will list an email address if that is allowed? You can contact me with questions.... eddings.tkc@cox.net Mrs Fiddlesticks forever.....

Miss Me, But Let Me Go

When I come to the end of the road,
and the sun has set for me.
I want no rites in a gloom-filled room.
Why cry for a soul set free?
Miss me a little—but not too long,
and not with your head bowed low.
Remember the love that was once shared.
Miss me, but let me go.

For this is a journey we all must take,
And each must go alone.
It’s all a part of the master’s plan,
A step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick of heart,
Go to the friends we know.
Bear your sorrow in good deeds.
Miss me, but let me go.

Hope to see you up the trail,,,, Never met but missed,,,

I'm sure the first words that Terry heard when he arrived in Heaven was, "Well done good and faithful Servant"

I'm so very sorry to here Fiddlesticks has left for the happy hunting grounds. I always enjoyed his posts.

Even though I had not met him face to face I did count him a friend.

I just now found out about sticks and am taking this hard. It was just a few days ago that I spoke with him through this forum. I never met him but I know we were good friends. I just don't know what to say, I'm really going to miss him. So sorry for your loss.
