RIP some fuck or another

Recommended Posts

Thank you very much for your support and well wishes, guys. I can't really explain how helpful it is to read about your caring, and how hard this hit. The saddest part ended this morning with the cremation, but the toughest part, the getting back to normal for the widow and her kids, is starting soon.

RIP George. Condolences Mikey. I wish Stretch's desires become true.

Went to a "celebration of life" for my friend Alex who passed away earlier this month at 26; many tears were shed yesterday. I haven't had the heart to come in this thread in a bit, but I'm so saddened by all of the losses near and dear to those of our d-_-b family. ‚̧ԳŹ and *hugs* to you all.

This.  Hang in there guys, it's a doubly tough time of year to suffer losses so severe.

RIP, George. 

Clearly a very principled man who did what he thought was right. He brought dignity to the office. 

I’m not so sure history will judge him kindly. Reading the NYT obit I was stunned by some of his actions. The world was a different place in the 90s, but while some help progress, others stand in its way.

RIP Mr. President.  "Dignity" is a very good word to use....

The bond he created with a one-time "enemy" in Bill Clinton is something that politicians all over the US can learn from....

There was an excellent eulogy by one of our ex Prime Ministers, John Major. On the Radio 4 current affairs Today programme. He got to know Bush very well when they overlapped as PM and President. Even when they were long out of power, Major and his wife used to visit on a regular basis, including several times over the last couple of years when Bush was really ill.

He made the point that Bush's political philosophy was to have political adversaries, but never to see them as enemies. The comment above is a perfect example of that in practice.

One of an alas older generation of WWII active service politicians the like of which we won't see again.

RIP George W Bush

RIP President Bush. He certainly left nothing on the table when he passed. What a rich life he had.

RIP, George Sr.  You were my most respected president in my lifetime and you will be missed.  I hope you and Barbara are sipping coffee on a porch up in the sky and providing some inspiration to a time and place that has much to improve upon...

 

And I should add, my sincere apologies for not having passed on sincere condolences to all those that lost loved ones during this season.  For some reason I have not had the heart to come into this thread of late.  No excuses.

RIP 41.

Although I was no fan of his policies, it was impossible not to respect the man.

"The good ole days."

Unexpectedly bummed out by the unexpected death of Paul Sherwen, professional cyclist and, more importantly to me, cycling commentator. Sad that I won't see him beside long time partner Phil Liggett any more because they have commentated all of the Tours de France I have followed starting in the late 80s. He competed in 7 and commentated in 33.  Commentate in peace, Mr Sherwen.
