We got the news Tuesday morning, and that was one of the more depressing days of my life.

Even though he had not posted here since early 2005, JB left an lasting impression on many of us that will not be soon forgotten.

You’re right. On most issues, Shrub’s head is exactly where it should be. But on some, like this one, his head is deeply implanted in rectal defilade.

Day is done,
gone the sun,
from the lakes
from the hills
from the sky,
all is well,
safely, rest,
God is near.

Fading light,
Dims the sight,
And a star gems the sky
Gleaming bright,
From afar,
Drawing, near,
Falls the night.

Thanks and praise,
For our days,
Neath the sun
Neath the stars
Neath the sky,
As we go,
This, we, know,
God is near.

Rest in Peace my friend!

He was way too young to be leaving us all. Hank was one of them guys that had his head on straight, IMO. Hope his daughter and the rest of the family are all okay.

Prayers up for JB and family.

Notre père, qui êtes aux cieux!
Que votre nom soit sanctificié. Que votre règne vienne.
Que votre volonté soit faite, sur la terre comme au ciel.
Donnez-nous aujourd'hui notre poindre ce jour.
Pardonnez-nous nos offenses, comme nous pardonnons aussi a ceux, qui nous ont offensés,
et ne nous soumetez pas à la tentation, mais délivrez-nous du mal.
Car c'est à toi qu'appartiènne, le régne, la puissance et la gloire, pour les siècles des siècles.
Amen.

Je vous salue, Marie, pleine de grâces,
le Seigneur est avec vous, vous êtes bénie entre toutes les femmes,
et Jésus le fruit de vos entrailles est béni.
Sainte Marie, Mère de Dieu, priez pour nous pauvres pécheurs,
maintenant, et à l'heure de notre mort. Ainsi-soit-il.

Garde la Foi, mes amis! Nous nous sommes les sauveurs de la République! Maintenant et Toujours!
(Keep the Faith, my friends! We are the saviors of the Republic! Now and Forever!)

I met him when he was a patient in the hospital where I work (several years ago). I would occasionally get e-mails from him.

He was a very sweet man and a true patriot. Go with God, Hank.

I met him when he was a patient in the hospital where I work (several years ago).

That was his first heart attack. I did a prayer thread for him then, and brought it to his daughter there in the hospital.

This was a massive one - he had been under a doctor’s care/observation because of the bypass surgery and was doing remarkably well.

His wife found him slumped over his ‘puter Saturday morning.

They were to go on a delayed honeymoom to Hawaii this week... :(

Thank you HiJinx, for letting us know of this sad news. Jackelope Breeder took us to the front lines of the immigration debate with first hand views of the problem. I learned more than I can say from this good patriotic American.
He walked his talk. A rare thing. One of the last postings I saw from JB was announcing his marriage. May peace be with his family.
