What We Are
 
One of the guys on here found a nice catch on Craig's list, but since he's a ways away, he asked me to go look at it for him.

The seller was completely unfamiliar with these trucks, but was selling some parts off an '05 six-oh that his father had rolled and totaled.

He asked me why I would drive down to look at some stuff for somebody hundreds of miles away, so I explained about how we sorta' take care of each other, and I was just "paying my insurance bill" that someone would come to my assistance someday if I ever needed it. He thought that was pretty neat, and then he said something that just blew me away after I thought about it.

He said:

"So, you guys are like a brotherhood!"

That IS cool, Marv!

The Brotherhood of FTE.

That'd make a great hoodie! :D

I can picture it now...semi-circle across the top back "Brotherhood Of FTE" with a couple SuperDuty rigs in profile below the words, and a persons forum name and PAA number below the rigs.

Thanks again for helping me out!

I am proud to call any of the fine folks around here my Brother or Sister. I have recieved, as well as given.

I remember what I have recieved, and forgotten what I have given.

RIP Jet

RIP Markadeck

Well put BD. I will be thinking of those guys this weekend. I sure miss them here. I will be sure to make a toast to their memory. Wish you could have made it too bro.

BTW, just in case anyone is wondering, I located a 6.0L IC and trans cooler on Craigslist down in SoCal, about 6 hours south of me. I made a tentative deal with the seller to buy the two parts for $160 bucks, and PM'd Marv for help.

Marv lives about 25 minutes away from the guy so the next day (today), he went over to the sellers residence and checked out the parts for me. After he determined they were in good shape (they came off a truck that had been involved in a collision and had rolled over), he paid the guy with his own money for me.

You can see the thread here: http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/87...ringerpop.html

RIP Brothers: Lost but NEVER forgotten.

Well said Brandon and Mike

Nice post Marv. Reps to you Brother.

Even though I am old enough to be a grandfather to some of the younger members, and a father to quite a few more, I much prefer being considered a brother to all. :-wink
