I still can't believe he's gone. Thad was one of the inspirations for the BHCA Hunt Test, and hence, one of my mentors and heroes. The Basset world has suffered a great loss. My heart goes out to his wife Carol. I don't know what else to say. I can't believe he's gone....but never forgotten. Vaya con Dios Thaddeus. With respect, admiration and love, Belinda and all the Hunting Bassets. You will always be in our hearts and thoughts, and your spirit will always fill the fields with thoughts of rabbits and the sound of harking hounds.
