Rest in Peace, Greg

I received word last night that my cousin, Greg Magee, was found dead in his home in Texas. He was 53 years old. There are no other details I can give you at this time. Greg and I had recently reconnected on Facebook and had had several wonderfully silly conversations over the past few months. His mother, Glenda, was my father's only sibling and my father adored her. Occasionally, I actually remember to think about someone besides myself. I did so on the past two holidays - St Valentine's Day and St Patrick's Day. I went to all my family members' FB pages and posted greetings for the day. Greg told me later I was the only person who wished him a Happy St Valentine's Day and a Happy St Patrick's Day. He leaves a son, Matthew, whom I have never met and three brothers: Walter Jr., Rex and Mark. Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon him.

My sympathy to you, and to Greg's family. Am glad you were able to reconnect again before he died.

thank you, Kathi. I was so shocked and saddened. We had talked about him coming out this summer for my Mom's 90th birthday!

May he rest in peace. Sorry for your loss Leslie. But happy you got to reconnect with him. That is what counts.
