The Passing of a Man

Today was the unfortunate passing of a great man by the name of John Thornton. Those that passed on with him include his friends Hans and Pete. He lived on the trails stopping now and then for a break but he never really had a home, always sledding. After all that was his passions, his dream, he was a dog sledder trying to find the valley of gold. He was able to but in the end it lead to his demise. He owned the legendary dog who goes by the name of Buck, being able to pull a sled of 1,000 pounds all by himself. John himself however was a caring individual who had a passion for each of his dogs. He will be mourned for his courageous acts on the trail and his excitement that he brought through the valley. May he rest in peace.
