Uligy; God looked around his garden
And He found an empty place,
He them looked down upon this earth,
And saw your tired face,
He put his arms around you
And lifted you to rest.
God`s garden must be beutiful.
He always takes the best.
He knew you were suffering,
He knew you were in pain.
He knew you would never
get well on earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough
and the hills were hard to climb.
So He closed your weary eyelids,
And whispered "Peace be thine".
It broke our hearts to loose you
But you did`nt go alone.
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.
Rest in Peace my dear freind .
We will never forget you .
Can`t forget ,, Paul Newman , the best of the best .. Rest in peace ..
Great Motown songwriter, Norman Whitfield was buried today. "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" and so much more from this man. Psychedelic soul kitchen cooker. It's a turn table night.
Oh, dear...what a loss for us all. When Paul Newman came to a GD show in NY-it was a stadium show (Giant Stadium, I think) We were standing behind the drums & I turned around & there was Paul Newman. Introduced myself & the 8 yr. old boy I was in charge of @ the time. The kid says "OH, you're the man on the salad dressing" Needless to say, Paul Newman laughed very hard & enjoyed the rest of the concert......later rented some movies like "Cool Hand Luke" so the boy could get a clue on who Paul Newman is/was ..................Gypsy Cowgirl
So sad :(
NOT PAUL NEWMAN!!!!!!!!!!!!! Learning sad facts here on Deadnet. Am so sad to read GRTUD and johnman's posts that have to go research and mourn a bit. Sniff.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone, you will still exist, but you have ceased to live.
gnite butch! we're gonna miss ya
Thank you, Mr. Newman... from salad dressing to hard boiled eggs, you were one of kind and an inspiration to me, as well an entire generation.
Today would of been my sister's 50th birthday today!
She passed away 1 year and 11 months ago after the fight of her life with breast cancer.
She was my best friend and I miss her every minute!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU PATTY!!
I LOVE YOU MORE THAN WORDS CAN TELL!
Dance with Jerry!
Btyant Brandenberg,,Aka "Stinky",,,Well I just got a phone call no one likes ta get,, my best friends and tour brother for many a years died out in Colorado this morning....
Bryant you will be missed,, anyone that has a copper Jerry hand hanging in thier bus or car,, may know him as "Stinky",,(he did give up that nick a few years ago, something about meeting woman with the name stinky),,
Bryant and I toured together for about 7 almost 8 years in the late 80's and 90's,, he is the one I ran off with to take a break from society when my marrage ended,, we spent about a yaer together then , I have not had the chance to see him in a few years,, but we always stayed in contact on the phone,, Bryant worked at Go Ask Alice in Brockport, NY for a short time but you may all know him ,,(if you were on Dead tour, or from Colorado area) as the guy that twist and wraped with copper,, he had been working with copper for almost 25 years,, Anyone that was close with him most likey has one of his Jerry hands,,,
Bryant always said when he died he wanted his ashes spred at Cougar hot springs,, I will try and make sure that happens,,,,
With a empty spot in my heart,, Mike
Love will see you through.
"Where does the time go?"
