  2. Thank you.
  3. Thank you. He was amazing. Words can’t describe how grateful I am to have had him as my grandfather.

  4. So sorry for your loss. Your grandfather sounds like a great man. Always hold on to all of those memories, and never stop telling his story. That way he will always be alive in your heart.

  5. Thank you. A few things that stick out that I didn’t mention. I never once heard him curse and I never once saw him get angry. The man just had love and kindness flowing through him. I remember asking him when I was a little boy, “grandad, why don’t you ever say bad words or get mad?” He told me that he wasn’t always that way. I find that hard to believe. My uncle and my mother never recall him ever being angry or cursing. I wish my kids could say the same. They only have a small sample of my life compared to his.

    He set the bar so incredibly high on how to love and treat your wife. How to set an example for your children and how to love and respect your fellow man.
  6. So many people from his church (I spent a lot of time in Durant) came to me and said that he always talked about me coming to town and staying with him and how proud he was of me. It was so hard to hear, but I was also happy to hear the stories.

    One man in particular who I’ve known my entire life from the church of Christ in Durant and was an honorary pallbearer told me, “your granddaddy served everybody else except himself until his last breath” “He was an example of what Christ calls us to be”

    He hit the nail on the head.

    I just don’t know how I can fill those shoes
  7. Sounds like a great man!

    But don’t go around trying to fill anyone else’s shoes, those are theirs. Just keep doing you and being a good dad to the kiddos!

  8. I've been there a couple years ago with a grandpa I felt the same way about. I know that grief well and it sucks, but you can't let it overwhelm all the amazing memories and influences. I'll pray for you and your family. Sorry to hear the news.
  9. Sorry for your loss nwla. Sounds like he had a profound effect on a lot of people. Something we can all strive for.

  10. That’s a loss that you can never be prepared for. I’m probably going to have one in my granddad sooner rather than later. Sorry about your loss.

  14. My neighbor is none other than former San Antonio Mayor Henry Cisneros. I hadn’t met him in the 6 weeks I lived her thus far until today, when I came around the corner while walking my dog and my dang ol’ dog just started barking furiously at him. It scared the [ Cumbie’s red zone playcalling ] out of him. Papers flying in the air. Dang near gave him a heart attack.

    Now that is a howdy neighbor he’ll never forget.

  16. I don’t know what to do.

    My wife decided to try walking around the neighborhood by herself on Saturday. She wasn’t gone 5 minutes before gunfire started from the same direction she was shot from.

    We haven’t heard gunfire in months but the one time my wife tries to venture outside, some neighbor decides to start shooting.

    She called the cops, of course by the time they arrived the shooting had stopped.

    We probably should’ve moved. However we didn’t want to uproot our sons. We ended up spending a lot of money on our house to try and make my wife more comfortable. Plus, there’s never a guarantee that a new house won’t be near gunfire or safer. At least in our current house the neighbor promises never to allow shooting on his property again and all of the other neighboring properties have been notified of our shootings and the danger of shooting towards our neighborhood.
  17. Unreal. Sucks and I will always be blown away how they handled your situation

  18. Ok, if the county is still circling wagons about this [ Cumbie’s red zone playcalling ], my next call would be the Tx Rangers (ask for Odor) or an investigative news outfit with one of the local stations.

    Call The Ones for Justice (CBS 11). They'll fix their wagon if it's a story they pick up.

  19. Based on the very limited knowledge I have, I'd move. Surely there are other neighborhoods in the same school zoning? You may need to end up in a type of home you don't really want to be (super suburban master planned type thing), but you won't ever have to worry about it again outside of a crazy event.

  20. Sorry dude. That sucks. I suspect you won’t have a say in the matter. Your wife will likely demand to move.
