That's beautiful, Allen. It certainly draws out both smiles and tears. Could this be put on the NCKA front page?

Allen thanx for the endearing write up. Mooch truely had that rare gift to be everyone's best friend. I am saddened and grateful at the same time.... What a touching send off we gave him eh? I think we all learned how to be a better person from his presence. A life long gift.

Thanks for writing that Allen. I will add that, although the records/pics were lost, Joel was NCKA's first AOTY.
 I think if we had a vote he would easily be NCKA's angler of the decade. jim

Brother Joel is grinning from ear to ear.

+1 I agree that Joel is looking down grinning ear-to-ear knowing that he is a modest/humble man who doesn't want attention. Awesome writeup Allen!!

Really sad to hear about Mooch. I haven't been on the site for a few months, so it was a bit of a shock. Thanks for the great memorial.
