Default Gardentender's obituary

As a news editor, I had both the duty and privilege of writing my brother's obit last week. A shorter version appeared in the Dallas Morning News on April 4.

Here is the longer one. http://www.lizardlodge.com/aspic/200...1945-2007.html

Thanks for all your friendship to my brother.

Default Memorial/Burial for John Cox aka Gardentender

I know that it's been a very long time (in internet dog years) since my brother was active on this site. He passed away March 25, 2007 and is still listed on the gone but not forgotten page. Thanks for that.

This Friday, August 22, 2008, at 10:30, we will bury his ashes with military honors for his service in the Army, here in Dallas.

Today is his birthday, his 63rd, and I hope that anyone who knew him will raise a glass of something tasty and crack a few jokes, gun your engine and remember him fondly.

Thanks for listening, caring and remembering.

OMG me too! in fact, I'm ganking that trick to use on my knitting boards. HA HA HA!

He once put a bumper sticker (scotch taped it temporarily) on my dad's Mercedes that said, "My other car is a Pinto" (or something similar). Dear Old Dad was not amused.
