This won’t be a pleasant post. Over the past few weeks we’ve lost three good people.
Will Grigg ran the Pro Libertate website, and I’ll admit that I havn’t been over there for a year or so. I didn’t stop following him because his blog (and podcast, for that matter) lacked for anything, rather it was that I was always so pissed off after reading it that I had to stop. His content was always excellent, and was a great resource for those interested in how “justice” gets meted out by corrupt officials. Will was doing great work right up until his death by heart attack at 54. He is sorely missed by his family, and his passion for justice was unmatched. Rest in peace, brother.
There is a GoFundMe for his family here. If you have a couple bucks and want to help them, please do.
Kevin O’Brien ran the Weapons Man blog and it was a daily stop for me. I received more about firearms of all kinds, their history, and their uses in each military service than I’d have been able to learn in a lifetime of reading books. Kevin also died from heart failure.
His blog is still up, and I urge you to stop by and peruse it, starting at the beginning. I believe you’ll be glad you did. Much more detail about his death and life celebration are there if you care to know.
Finally, Bob Owens took his own life, leaving a wife and two daughters, 9 and 17. I have no interest in moralizing about his choice. This is neither the time nor place, so please follow my lead.
My only interaction wit Bob was on Twitter, and I found him to be intelligent and witty. Bob ran the Bearing Arms website. He is also missed by his family, and I can only imagine that they are having a very hard time right now. Once again, if you have a little money and would like to contribute to his family’s immediate and college needs, you can head over to the GoFundMe set up in his name here. I’m sure it’ll be very much appreciated.
I’ve been personally mourning Will and Kevin’s death, and putting off this post, sorry. Now, with Bob’s death I had to get the move on. We’ve lost three excellent people, and I’m going to pray for the people who loved them. If you pray, I urge you to do so as well.
Go hug your friends and family.
