Farmers Tribute Fallen Friend

"It seems to me that farming communities all over the country may still hold the key to what makes this country a shining beacon in a world of trouble."

Loved this story of farmers taking time in harvest season to pay a unique tribute to a young farmer who died from cancer.  See full article with lots of great photos here.


  1. You can see them every morning in the factories and the fields
    In the city streets and the quiet country towns
    Working together like spokes inside a wheel
    They keep this country turning around

    Hello fallen Illinois farmer, let me thank you for your time

  2. Reminds me of the 10 or so combines that did McGargill's farm the fall Coleen past away. Remember that pictures they were all angled back going through the field together. Quite a sight. Midwest is Best! :)

  3. Very touching story. The photographs are great.
