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.

This is MrsWestlander. I have read each and every one of your posts.I printed the pages to put in his memorial book. I have cried reading them and I thank each and every one of you for taking the time to post. I have stood reading over his shoulder so many times when he would say, “Come here, you have GOT to read this”, that I am familiar with many of your names. Joe had opinions, and values and he loved Free Republic for giving him the opportunity to have a voice. He would be humbled at many of your comments, and to other posters, he would get a kick out of your appreciation of his snarky sense of humor. [WWJWT] what would John Wayne think. ...his last post.
Thank you for putting him on your Memorial Wall. This was a heartwarming experience, I an glad I contacted Grellis, who got the ball rolling, when I didn't know how, BIG HUG TO HER!!!
