I am new to PL. I have been friends with John Groh since we were 16. I am not a LEO, although I have completed our local city PD's Citizen Police Academy, one son-in-law is a detective, another son-in-law was a Army MP, and one daughter is a parole officer for the State Juvenile Justice System.


As you may now be award, our friend John Groh is gravely ill. He is confined to a wheelchair and is trying to wean himself from the vent he's been hooked up to since Sept. Needless to say, he is fighting to keep his spirits up.


REQUEST 1 - I am inviting everyone to help celebrate John's life. No get-well wishes, instead write about things you learned from John, shared with John, goofy John stories, what John has meant to you and your life. These can be instructive, inspirational, funny, heroic ... whatever.


Include your stories etc. in this forum and I will collect them, print them out and combine them into a booklet for John to enjoy and so he knows jest how important he has been to our lives.


REQUEST 2 - I would like to include photos of John in the booklet. If you have any photos of John (birth to present) please convert them to digital format (Walmart, Target, etc. can help) and upload them to this forum.

 


PS Don't tell Nancy (John's wife) as this is to be a surprise.

Thanks for this, BassmanRic!  I know John will love it!  You may also draw from my thread WISEASS whatever posts I have made that might suit the gift to John.


BUMP!

John and I used to talk hunting and the trips we went on. He told me that he got rained out and showed me photos of his tent and truck. I told him that it did not look fun but he laughed it off. We talked about him coming to MT. but I guess that won't happen. We will miss you on here my friend God bless you and your family. Alan

With respect extended to our original poster, this topic has, of course, taken on a memorial tone for John.


He passed away on December 6, 2012.
