I stand by my decision. People wouldn't argue & curse in a funeral home, at least not any that I've ever been to. No comments were even necessary. I just felt I had to get it off of my chest as I had just found out about it. He was a close personal friend of my son's & he was like a nephew to my wife & I just like all Rangers whether we know them or not.

The same thing happened to Tacky a few years ago when he started a memorial thread about his fallen buddies at Mogadishu, Somalia. The thread was hijacked by a lot of irreverent, irrelevant foolishness.

I don't feel I was disrespected personally & I couldn't care less if I had been but it had no place on the thread memorializing a fallen hero.

I just want to put an end to it.
