The worst day ever

In a follow on to this post (http://www.neptunuslex.com/2006/01/24/got-a-comment-on-the-old-blog/) Lex had a response to a comment from AFSister regarding Terry.
“Thanks, AFSister. He was a good man, and I was lucky to have served with him. If that ends up being my epitaph some day, I’d call that a success.”
Perhaps some of us here did serve with Lex, most did not. However, if you change that second sentence to – “He was a good man, and I was lucky to have known him.” It is a fitting epitaph for Lex and I’d say he was definitely a success. This blog is a memorial to that success.
God I miss him…
When I first re3ad that I realized how hast things can go from normal – to tragedy.
Less than a second.
OT, but I just looked at Neptunus Lex .com, and saw the birthday greetings from the Kat, the Biscuit, and SNO. I wanted to leave a comment, but that was not possible, so I am doing it here. Ashley, Kate, and Chris? You keep on keeping on! Your Dad was an inspiration to me, though I never met him in the flesh. I hope that he is still an inspiration to y’all.
JTG – you are never off-topic here brother.
Took a hard gulp when I read the title of today’s post. I knew what was coming but I read it anyway, again. It’s one of those that stays and gets to you every time.
That one was so heartbreaking I cannot bring myself to read it again… I stopped at the title.
Miss him. Can’t read the linked story either – WAY to close to home for all of us now. And Sarge is right – what Lex said in the follow-up is very fitting for Our Man.
