All those old faces and names and now so many are dead.
With them goes my childhood heart and my heroes!
But then again, they never die, for they are always in our hearts and the shows still come on and you can pretend you are young once more watching your hero!
I couldn't have said it any better.....thanks David!
"My heroes have always been Cowboys!"

Chuck Connors....."The Western is an escape from reality and you have to accept certain things in them. A Western may excite or bore you, but it's always relaxing.
There's value in that."
