I wrote a long post a couple of weeks ago about my stepfather being sick. Well I lost him a week ago. Thank you guys for the well wishes and prayers.

At the risk of compromising my anonymity here was a quick blurb about it in the News and Observer.

Paul Pulley, who served in the state House for eight from 1979 until 1986 representing Durham died Sunday at age 77.

Pulley was an influential Democratic lawmaker and after retiring from the General Assembly became a lobbyist for the Academy of Trial Lawyers and they North Carolina Community College System. He formed the law firm of Pulley Watson King & Lischer.

While in the legislature, Pulley served as chairman of the House Judiciary Committee and was usually rated as among the more influential members of the legislature

And thank you guys for the distractions. This is always a fun place to go to get away from that stuff and just talk football.

Remember the good times.  Take solace in the time you two had together! 

 

That's why there are Wakes.  So family and Friends can come together and rejoice a loved ones life.

 

There's and old Native American saying.  "A person is not judged by how long he has live.  But how many people were glad he did."
