Got home from work and met at the door by the Son of a very good friend of mine.... Seems George had a stroke yesterday .... His son in-law found him on the kitchen floor yesterday around 2 in the afternoon..... I lost my Dad when I was 25 and George was my surrigate since 1990 when I moved into my current house.... He was my neighbor when I moved in... Came right over and made himself at home lol.... We hit it off right off he bat and and hunted, fished and worked on lawn mowers lol... He'd do he tinkering to get them running good and I'd do the sprucing up with the painting and such..... He couldn't paint with a brush well alone with a spray gun lol..... He purchased his wifes family homestead when he retired and fixed it up with a lot of help from friends and it was back to a working farm of 110 acres..... He's just leased he rights for gas and got a nice chunk of change doing it and purchased his first new vehicle since 1952... A 2011 Ford F-150 extened cab 4X4.... Saw him Saturday in it and he looked like a kid at Christmas..... Now he's fighting for his life with no right side control or any speech and I feel like I've lost another Dad.... Man don't know if I can go through this again guy's.... My heart is breaking as I'm typing this and he was a big part of my life for the last 21 years and I'm not ready to say good by... I just got back from the Hospital and have a bad feeling that's going be the last time I'm able to say anything to him.... Sorry for rambling but it's tuff.... I lost my good friend and neighbor last spring and now this... Fuggin life ain't fair...... Good guys should last a lot longer and the others should take their place.....
