My Pawpaw died this morning.
Cheers to a great man. He was a Korea war vet and retired from the Baton Rouge school system. He was a teacher and principal for nearly 30 years. This was probably the most emotional I've been over the death of anyone. I don't grieve but it was upsetting to lose such a great guy. He was just short of 81 and died of old age. Over the last several months he's had trouble getting O2 to his brain and eventually his blood pressure got too low to get blood to his lower body. After 3 days of fighting he finally passed.

“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it's time to pause and reflect.”

-Mark Twain

My heart goes out to you, Tim. Girly don't grieve either, but I do weep. I'm weeping now. Be well, brother.

I am sorry to hear of the loss of a man that sounds like he was good people.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Sorry to hear. He sounded like a great grandpa, mine passed away this year too, similar story (war/teacher/principle). I remember thinking so much history and wisdom died, too.

RE: My Pawpaw died this morning.
Sorry to hear about your loss GT. Hope you and yours are coping as well as you can.

I feel so much, and yet I feel nothing.
I am a rock, I am the sky, the birds and the trees and everything beyond.
I am the wind, in the fields in which I roar. I am the water, in which I drown.
