Joe Reed was a very great man, who never met a stranger and would literally give you the shirt off of his back.
He was a 'handyman' who could plow through a total house painting / wallpapering project in the time it would take me to paint a closet... and pretty much do anything from unclogging a drain to cutting down a tree...to...well, you name it, if he couldn't fix it (which was a rare occurrence) he knew 2 or 3 other folks who could...
He took care and helped many older folks, primarily widow ladies... that's in the Bible, y'all... from mundane daily tasks to major issues, he was caretaker to many who had nobody else...
LOVED his grandkids... they called him 'Daddy-Daddy'... Rebekah came up with that one...
I am blessed and bettered by knowing him, as MANY are...
He will be greatly missed by ALL.

Of course, it has been well documented that April is my LEAST favorite month... apologies to those who are fans of this month... I'm sure that PLENTY of good things have happened in Aprils past... but... lotsa BAD, too... of course, Ginger left this orb in April of 1995... which obviously makes it a somber month in the world of Gingerology... but... here's a few other things you may or may not know about April calamities:
Here's hoping that this April will SOMEhow be...well, not so APRIL-like... I'm not too optimistic...
KIG - especially in this decidedly NON-Gingery month...

Also, TWO GingerFilms will be shown at the TCM Film Festival (April 6-9, 2017):
Lady in the Dark - ...The promo still on the link is in black and white... hmmmm....wonder if that will be how it is shown? I'm thinking not - hopefully will be a 'clean copy' of the color... I'm not up on all the film type details, but 'nitrite' is included, which I thought was a ticking time bomb... hopefully it is 'preserved'... one that would be awesome with a 'clean' DVD offering from Paramount, or whomever owns the rights to this one...
Rafter Romance - One of Dale Tremont's favorites, and mine as well... not sure if this one is any 'cleaner' copy than the TCM DVDs from a few years back, but... will be cool to see on the big screen...it's noted that film critic Leonard Maltin will be in attendance...
Finally, just noting there's lots of things cooking here in South Gingerville, so.. hope to squeeze in a post every now and then... again, FaceBook will be visited as most of us now do... the 'comments' on here for posts are generally non-existent... oh well... it appears there are still quite a few folks checking the site out...it's all good!
Y'all have a VERY Gingery Weekend!!!
It is my hope that I can continue to make 'G-ology' interesting and informative regarding the 'Beautiful Science' of VKM, which is SUCH a great topic!!! ...And remember, your comments are what make Gingerology click - so keep cranking them out!
Thanks again, JW
