Winston Rand … He Was A Pretty Good GuyJune 30, 2008 - Author: newscoma - Comments are closed
Winston was from northwest Tennessee and contacted me about a year ago. We had a few emails back and forth and I met him once at Mothership Barbecue. He was always lovely and so encouraging.
And the man could write circles around you.
Winston, from the blog Nobody Asked, died this weekend according to a post written by the Roomie.
Winston passed away Saturday, June 28, after a 38-hour illness and 3 surgeries totaling 12 hours in an attempt to save his life. His memorial service will be Tuesday, July 1, and will include things you may have seen on his blog, such as his recent post about the styrofoam cup that got tossed about in the traffic of life and found its resting place. His favorite song will be played — “The Rainbow Connection,” by Kermit the Frog, as well as a bluegrass version of Rocky Top.
Just last week, I linked to a wonderful post that he wrote about Jimmy Buffet. I have to say that Winston was always kind, smart and clever.
He will be missed and our thoughts and prayers go to Roomie.
He, indeed, was an excellent guy.
