Just wanted to share this with the Planet as alot of you have become like family these last 4 years but today December 26th,2007 the very day that I was born into this world 45 years ago my Grandfather and the man I was named after left this world today.


I was sitting at The Pizza Joint in Evans GA a couple of hours ago with my nephew when my cell phone rang and my lil bro informed me that he had received the news from St Joe.

Not looking for sympathy nor trying to be a drama queen here but since I consider alot of you family I wanted to share as this will be a birthday I will never forget and seeing that we're 1100 miles away my lil bro and I with our immediate families will carry on and remember Grandpa Joe from afar.

Thanks for the ears friends and don't forget to tell your family that you love them.

That's a bummer. You were fortunate to have known him for so long, I never even knew my grandparents on my father's side.

Sorry to hear that Joe, but on the bright side, if you are 45... he had to be at least 85, which is a long beautiful life!

God Bless Grandpa Joe!

And, if things couldn't get surreal-er, today is my birthday as well. What is more, it was 45 years ago today I came into this world in Lawrence, Kansas!

Happy Birthday NZONER! I am truly sorry for your loss. Sounds like you loved your Grandpa alot.

If you had a grandfather at your age he must have been about 130. That's a good run. But condolences are in order anyway. Come back home safely.

Dude, My condolences; just a dies note. My Grandfather left more of a mark on me than my own Father did; they truly are a blessing...
I'm happy you knew such a man, sorry for the loss.

Losing family is never easy. My one suggestion to you is to write down all of the memories that you have. Store them in a place that you can access at the times when you need a lift.

Love those family members that you know are hurting the most and encourage them to stay strong.

God be with you and your family at this time of loss.

Sorry to hear of your loss Nzoner. You were very lucky to have him around so long. Me I never knew either of my Grandpa's my moms dad passed away when mom was 10 and my dads father just wasn't much of a family man I suppose.
