Just received this from Dam Road Mike. Longdrink was a great shooter and a good friend, I know we will all miss him.

-------------------------------------
This message is to let all know that Jesse Heflick aka Long Drink passed away
about an hour ago.  As you all might remember he has been sick for a while now.
Please pass this on to other shooters for us.  Thank you.

I met Longdrink at the first shoot I ever went to at Mt. Horeb, Wis. I think in 1993. A better example of the "cowboy way" did not exist. He will be missed. Big Grit

Update-

Dam Road Mike tells me that since Jesse wasn't much for a fuss, there will be no services. However, he suggested we might let his wife Kathy know how much we thought of Long Drink and that our thoughts and prayers are with her in this difficult time. Her address is:

Kathleen Heflick N4540 Dam Road Delavan, WI. 53115

This is Jesse & Kathy Heflick - Long Drink & White Thunder - at the last GGP Banquet they attended.
