You can go to Youtube and watch some of the actions during Gregg's funeral.....submitted by several different people at different places......

Made me break down and cry yesterday as I watched.......all those black Caddies going down the road......

Around 2-2:30 P.M. Rivernole replied to one or two posts.The one that stood out to me more than any was this one. It is sad to look back at recent losses. I think some of us read this,but no replies. That's fine because the title reads "cause you still care" (not "I).I think he spoke for all of us....R.I.P.Gregg

my tears came during the Butch tribute and I knew we'd never see the Brothers again, friend close to and behind the scenes had informed me Gregg didn't have long. :(

and I Always Will

I was in Macon on that sunny Blue Sky day. Crying now just trying to get this out. I stood at the entrance to Rose Hill, joined the crowd on the hill for the service and stayed to watch them lay him in his grave. He was so much a part of my life and I was lucky enough to joke around with Gregg quite a few times, got autographs and other things from Gregg. Gregg was a true Southern Gentleman to me and many others.
After leaving Macon I drove to Fernandina Beach, Florida. I needed the ocean. Gregg was a fisherman, so I walked in the ocean, said a little prayer and contemplated things. As I was walking out of the water, with my head hung low, there on the beach that the surf just left was the blackest shell I have ever seen. In my mind that was The Midnight Rider saying he was still there in my life and will always be in his music he left for us all.
