I appreciate the home page tribute as everyone else does.
I went to the funeral home this morning with Marie, Jeff, and Crystal to do the final arrangements. They allowed us a little time with Grady. He looked so much more peaceful than he did last night. I was nice to be able to tell my friend one final goodbye. For him, I am glad it is over and he is at rest.
I will miss him though. We would call each other all the time with nothing to really talk about. One of my kids said we were like two old maid sisters.
I would say the world has lost a good man. RIP Mr Mathews, it was a pleasure to watch your videos, listen to your commentary, and read your posts/books. I owe much of what little I know beyond the basics of 1 pocket to you. Sorry I never got the chance to meet you in person. You'll be missed.
Thanks for the reminder Steve....I'll be joining you as well.
I didn't know Grady personally but I have the utmost respect for him...
I was watching the Buddy Hall vs Miz match from '94 Roanoke One Pocket Champion yesterday and I LMAO at Billy and Grady in the booth.
He was such a good sport....Billy got the best of him but he held his own pretty good.
It started right away at the beginning of the match....
Billy: It's certainly a pleasure to have you back with us Grady...
Grady: It's a pleasure to be with you....If for nothing else than to remind me of everything in life I want to avoid (slight pause) .....Awe our little altercations and spats, and verbal trysts and mental wars I've enjoyed those....
(And on and on it went)...:lol
This is entertinment at its best and some great one pocket commentary as well.
If you haven't seen this one it's well worth the purchase.
