    At 12:59PM EST, on Sunday September 13th, we will observe a moment of silence for CBZ40— most of you knew him as “Pops”.

    For one minute the only thread available to those visiting the Cowboy Zone, will be this one.

    This would have been Weldon’s 50th year as a fan of the Dallas Cowboys.

    And while it might be cliché to call him a good family man and a loyal friend— the fact is he was.

    In honor of Pops, the moderators and administrators of this forum have purchased a paver that reads:


    The paver will help ensure that the memory of Weldon Parkhill will extend for many years to come.

    A replica of the paver will be hand delivered to the family of “Pops” Weldon, thereby letting them know that CBZ’s other “family” will miss him also.

    Didn't really know you, but something tells me you were a great man, Pops.

    Rest in Peace!

    That is very nice of the staff. I hope someone will be able to get a picture of the paver for us that probably won't get a chance to go there anytime soon.

    The paver will be installed before the 2010 season. We'll make sure to let everyone know where it is.

    We've asked people to help with other pavers. We felt this one needed to be paid for by the staff, but it is from all of you. Make no mistake about it, it is from all of you to the Parkhill family in honor of Pops.

    From one old timer to another, Pops, you will be sorely missed!

    God bless your family, and we know that you'll be looking down with Him through the roof for that first home game.
