Greg Beck flipped our switch!
Greg Beck's Deaths Door was one of my very first blogs that I read. I was hooked. He was my crack. Get your mind out of the gutter, that's not what I meant. I was addicted. I had to read his blogs. He made me laugh, sometimes so hard I cried. God knows a person needs good laughs. And I think God sent him to teach us. So we will try to make Greg proud of us.
Last time I saw Greg Beck we were at blogger meet up at Governor Stumpy's. He was wondering if he was the only black blogger since he is the only one that we all knew about. Now there is no one representing.
I met Greg at my first blogger meet that he & Michelle of Well hell Michelle had organized at Harry's in the River Market. I got a big bear hug from him right off. I felt like was meeting a celebrity. He was gracious & kind to myself, a new blogger. Even with his colorful language he was a gentleman. I was looking forward to future blogger meets where we could get to know him more on a face to face basis.
Greg, you're one in a million. I respect you enormously. I will miss you.
