Default You guys remember my hoarder neighbor story?

....and how we went round and round about his eyesore broke down boat lift. Well....He died today. Steve and I had become good friends and I really feel bad about this. When his daughter gave me the news I actually teared up and had to fight not to cry. Doctors should have known he was to sick and out of shape to do open heart surgery.

In memory of hoarder who was a really nice guy. This is Steve fishing on the dock I built for him.

Rest in peace my friend....

Sorry for your neighbor/friend passing. It's never easy but you know you let him go with a friend.

Zeek, I remember the issues you and your neighbor had, but did not know you two had become good friends. That is awesome and speaks to what kind of guy you are. But I already knew that.

Dock looks wavy




Sorry to hear about your friend, but you know he appreciated that dock and it was a fine gesture

I remember.

As it ends, Zeek is the best neighbor one could wish for! I wish he was my nextdoor neighbor now......

May this individual RIP

At least you parted on friendly terms. You should offer to drill some free speed holes in the casket

Great to know that before he passed you were able to mend all things.
It is always much easier to remain an ahole,,, I know this well.

Many in here are angry, therefore their opinions are only their own.

If you have noticed, all love me, I also love me!!

Wrongo....
I'll walk away from this thread after this, in respect for the human that has past away.

I'm proud, to have defended this man, who I never met. I'm ashamed at the words typed here by the OP previous thread and I'm glad we don't speak anymore because I stuck up for a stranger, another person, that has the right to live as he pleased.

Wonder how the daughter would feel after reading these words posted earlier by the OP.

All about zeek, later putz.

Changing a quote can be funny, but definitely not when it's something I definitely wouldn't say. If that quote you changed for me is how you feel, then by all means, post it yourself without trying to make it look like I said it.

Thanks.
