With deep sadness today I must pass on the news of the untimely death of Charmille Tamulinas, wife of our friend and shooting companion, Stacey Tamulinas.
Charmille's tragic passing was the result of complications after suffering severe injuries in a fall at their home last week. Please take a minute to offer your prayers and thoughts to Stacey. All of us that knew Charmille, knew what a wonderful person she was, and now we can only imagine what sorrow Stacey is going through.
It's hard to believe that a loved one could be snatched away in an instant from us, to leave such a big hole in our life.
I've known Stacey and Charmille for more than 20 years and my heart is broken. I plan to spend a lot more time hugging my loved ones in the future.
