Freeper Westlander Has Died
family | March 13, 2010 | grellis

Posted on 03/13/2010 8:34:06 PM PST by grellis

I just received the very sad news that Michigan freeper Westlander has lost his battle with cancer. Joe died on March 4.

I cannot express well enough how much I will miss Joe. His loss will be felt throughout the whole forum, and especially by those of us here in Michigan who have come to know him so well the last six years. The mitten board will not be the same without him.

My thoughts and prayers are with Joe's wife, Pat, and his friends and family. May God bring them comfort in their time of need.

Godspeed, Joe.

I am appreciative of his last post.

In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. 4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. 5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? 6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

1For everything there is a season,
a time for every activity under heaven.
2A time to be born and a time to die.
A time to plant and a time to harvest.
3A time to kill and a time to heal.
A time to tear down and a time to build up.
4A time to cry and a time to laugh.
A time to grieve and a time to dance.
5A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a time to turn away.
6A time to search and a time to quit searching.
A time to keep and a time to throw away.
7A time to tear and a time to mend.
A time to be quiet and a time to speak.
8A time to love and a time to hate.
A time for war and a time for peace.

Dear Jet,

Thank you for the link to the Memorial Wall. I don't FReep as much as I used to, and didn't realize how many folks I knew that had passed recently.

I am sorry to hear that Westlander is no longer with us, too. My condolences to all.
