Greg Beck 1958-2007


Greg Beck was mean, drunk, horny and hilarious. His funeral - held at the Baptist Church where his mother belongs - didn't play down his vices and couldn't diminish his ability to bring the people of his life together to share one last toast to this great man. It was an honest and touching ceremony - short to Baptist standards, if I say so myself - full of laughter, loss and realization.
The red dresses were out in full force . . . and the ladies looked hot!! My favorite part of the whole event was little Matthew Sader calling out, 'yes, sir!' in the middle of a prayer. Jesus Camp - here he comes! =D

I can't imaging Greg being mean. Tough,yes, determined, absolutely, mean, never.

Great post, except like Spyder said, Greg wasn't mean. I knew him for years and I can't remember a time when he was mean to anyone.

I replied to Spyder's comment - and I'll just put it up here for everyone to see as well - especially Michelle, his good friend . . . it was just a joke in reply to some comment about a band member who called from the stage during a set that Greg was the meanest person ever. I guess it was the wrong choice of words, but I don't think he'd mind - I chose all of those adjectives because it's the last ones people say when remembering a friend, but they make me smile when I think of him. No disrespect intended. =D

Yep, that was my favorite part, too! Jesus camp? I don't think so!

I'm taking in all the happenings in Kansas City and saving you all the trouble . . . I'll let you know whether to soak it up or squeeze it out!!
