  1. Folks, some of you have asked if we were trimming our forums since there are no sports at the moment. We’re going to keep everything open on the forums to provide a sense of normalcy here. It’s our hope Gator Country can be a place of comfort for you during these crazy times. Be safe my friends and take care. -Ray and the GC staff. GO GATORS IN AL KINDS OF WEATHER!

    PS. If you happen to find yourself in tight financial circumstances with regards to renewing here please reach out to us. We’d be happy to help sort it out.

Please pray for me

    After spending 5 hours in my girl's visitation hours greeting hundreds of loving friends, I walked out to this sign. The picture really doesn't show how beautiful it was. She got her wings.

    Speed...just saw this...prayers sent. Do know....you will see her again in paradise (Heaven), and you will be with her FOREVER. Keep that fact in your heart while you go through this tough time. I know it’s real tough...BUT YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

    Sleep soundly my Gator friend knowing God is taking care of her and knowing you will be reunited with her. What a happy day that will be.... Thanks be to Jesus for his SUPREME SACRIFICE! The BEST gift!

    I am comforted by the special memories this summer, especially our last day. I told her I was so proud of her, when she rushed to Ohio to help my parents after almost losing my mother (she flat lined 5 times, a helicopter flew her to Huntington, W.Va. to put in a temporary pacemaker until surgery the next day). I got a big hug & kiss and told her I love her when we said goodbye July 23. Our last day was so full of love. A trip to the grocery store turned into a random excursion to see a waterfall near where I grew up. I can't believe 12 days later she suffered a severe neurological reaction apparently from medications causing a chemical imbalance.

    There is a benefit at Wente's in St Charles, MO. this Sat. to celebrate her life and help the kids. If anyone here wants a Gator visor signed by Danny Wuerffel, or one of a kind 2016 Daytona 500 helmet signed by winner Denny Hamlin, or lots of other nice prizes, tell your STL friends to check it out.
    Thanks again to all of you for your kind words and thoughts. My heart is healing. Go Gators

    SoS, I've read through this thread with its heartbreaking news of your beloved daughter's passing several times since you first posted. My heart hurts for your loss and I wanted to write something that might alleviate the devastating emotional pain I know you and your family are suffering. I could find no adequate words. Still can't, but for a few that have helped me from time to time.

    Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. Ecclesiastes 12:7

    May the promises of God and the distance of time assuage your grief and ease your pain. Amen

    Thank you. I've read that verse and many more. I brought home a pink rose from her funeral and spread the petals in my back yard. I can't wait for my grandkids to visit and play in the same yard, stay in the same house as she grew up in.
