    Default Relay from Alabama-Redneck

    I met up with AR at the funeral home this evening. He will post his thanks you's etc in a few days, once he gathers his thoughts.

    He did ask that I thank everybody for the beautiful flowers, it is a huge blue and gold splay of what I guess to be (and it is a guess) gold asters and what might be blue-belles. It was quite pretty and unique. Good job to those who took the time to select it and have it sent.

    He also wants everybody to know he's doing ok and REALLY REALLY appreciates the outpouring of sympathy for him.

    What a lousy way to finally meet one of my better friends on here. What a big gentle man he is too. What a CRUSHING HANDSHAKE he can give, without trying. The man must have milked cows for a living!! Sheesh!

    I'm glad one of us got to go. I could not get out of work to do it, but if anybody got to go I'm glad it was you.

    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    I've emailed him many a time and he has been nothing short of Spectacular, The Man is totally amazing and has the best character, he has sent me Pacer Tapes over the years and that is something he has never asked for in return..

    This situation that has happened is so un fair and unjustified and A-R never deserved this, I just hope that the community here can help him now and in future as much as he has helped many others and me

    I'm bumping this so it doesn't fall off the page. I want the daytimers to be able to read AR's greeting.

    Please, this is not about me. This is for AR and his family.

    Thanks to Geezer for being able to represent us and to whomever sent the flowers. It really warms my heart to be part of a forum like this that has become almost a family.

    If someone is looking for contributions toward the flowers (or if there is an "in memorium" contribution fund set up) be sure and let us know.

    I apologize for my lack of whatever you wanna call it Able. I'm glad I live close enough to have been able to do it. The actual funeral is about 5 minutes from my home so I will be attending that this afternoon also.
