I am so sorry to hear this news, my FRiend...your dad will be greatly missed around here. He was always embued with the optimism of Reagan and constantly saw a better day ahead, despite the health problems that plagued him.

My prayers go out to you, your mother, and your family in this dark time.

Man. It must have come suddenly Mud. He was posting yesterday morning:

Judge Leon Holmes Confirmed

"We've gotta take him out in the '06 GOP Primary!!"

As Corin keeps reminding me, Big Jawn doesn't run again until '08.

Thanks, Meeky...Greg was a devout man and I have no doubt that he's up there looking down on us now...reckon he's probably badgering Dutch Reagan with a bunch of questions and advice.

Oh no. This is sad, sad news. I am stunned.
I really don't know what to say.

I knew he had a lot of health issues but I was really hoping that things would take a turn for the better.

Tears for our FRiend, Sultan.

I think we'll have to toast his memory at the next RTM.

"It must have come suddenly..."

He's been really ill for months, but he never really let on exactly how serious. He's been on a waiting list for a liver or kidney transplant for a long while, however, after a recent surgery, I had gottan the impression that he was on the mend. We were in the process of setting up a FReeper lunch get-together next Thursday...yeah, it came suddenly for me.

yankhater, during a freepmail exchange with your
dad, it was very obvious to me just how very
proud of you he was.

Thanks for letting us know, Mud.
And, thanks for the pings, Meek and kayak.

I will dig up the photo from the Braves game last summer and post it in his honor, if that's ok with Yank.

Sultan was a pilar to this community and to America. He was a great man and I feel blessed to have known him for a time.

I did not know sultan88, but it is always so sad when a Freeper passes on. Please, accept my sincerest condolences. I know he will watch over his family and friends here on earth and I'm sure he will be praying for us as we 'fight the good fight'. May God rest his soul, and comfort his family upon their loss.

Heavenly Father, we return to give You thanks for a life so lived that strangers are touched by Greg's passing. I'm one of those, Father, who did not know him, but the words from friends who did are a testament to his goodness. Comfort each as only You can ... his family and his friends ... and may they rest in the assurance that the mourning of today turns into the joy of reunion tomorrow. In the Name of Jesus, I pray, Amen ...

Oh, Sultan88, how you will be missed!

He has always encouraged FReepers and took us neophytes under his wing, welcoming us and making us feel at home at Free Republic.

Greg was the kindest gentleman. When I was going through months of illness and misdiagnosis of a kidney ailment he sent me information and weblinks that helped me get through a difficult time.

And that sweet, gentle humor....

When he opens his eyes in Glory I am confident he will hear, "Well done, my good and faithful servant, well done."
