Default Mourning a loss

Yet another Local great has passed away...great guy words cannot express

Roy was an older guy and he was a legal little person. A hospital had to operate on him long ago and they botched the procedure badly. The mess up affected the rest of his life but that didn't slow him down. He bought a new 6.0 GTO and modded it a little bit. However, he really loved the new retro style Mustangs. He ended up getting a 2007 Mustang GT.

To make a long story the car was BEAST. Roush super charger, stroker, gear box, suspension, wheels and tires, roll cage.... We're talking a MEAN car. The body was just amazing. The classic blue with the white stripes. Last year Roy and Luke got it up to an 11.4 second time. Of course he wasn't happy so it'* currently at a shop, motor getting rebuilt.

I'm really bumming out... This week has been awful... It'* gonna be really sad during our first meets for my local car club... I'm not sure what it'* going to be like now... I'm trying to let everyone know of the memorial service around the area that knew him vaguely as just, "That Fast Blue Mustang", but it'* impossible as we only really meet once a week in the summer.

He was a great friend and a great person. He loved cars just as much or more than any of us. I will miss him dearly.

Soory to hear Man. Sounds like a heck of a guy. Heading into my late 50'* I've had alot of old friends cut down to fast in life. The best medicine for me has been to not dwell on the bad, rough parts; but to keep a positive attitude and reflect on the great things the guy did and how it helped you. He'* gone, but if he can look back and see you and the people he touched, he would want you to be positive. And remember him for the good things and good times.
