I think it should be said that our own "Pelican", Rick L., gave huge amounts of his friendship and time to Grady-- certainly in the last year or so of Grady's life. Rick made many trips from Mobile to Lexington to help Grady, and to see to his final affairs. Rick is not the kind of man who puts that stuff out on the street, and I hope he's not ticked at me for mentioning this. But without Rick's help, Grady's final several months would have been much bleaker.

I recall similar attention that Beard gave to Bugs during his final days. I think guys like Rick and Freddy show what true friendship is all about.

Doc, I am so happy to see you back on the forum. I do not know "Pelican", but he sounds like a great human being and truly good friend to Grady. That pleases me.

Freddy is one of the finest men I know. With all of his "Detroit Whitey Good, Weeny Beenie Bad", he is the most upstanding gentleman I have ever had the pleasure of associating with. Can't ever get a better friend than Freddy the Beard.

Clare
