    Default Tribute

    This is the only message board I post to anymore, has been for a while now.

    Last night, my father passed away. My mother and I were both there with him. He was 70 years old, and had been battling cancer for 5 years now. I held his hand as he took his last breath, and that's something I'll never forget. He was there with me when I was born and I was there with him when he died. I guess, that's how it's supposed to be.

    I would like to pay him tribute here, on a board he never even knew existed. He was there with me for my first NFL game on December 26th, 1999 when the Titans beat the Jags 41-14. We were also together in Adelphia Coliseum for the wild-card game on January 8th 2000, when the Tennessee Titans beat the Buffalo Bills in the game that has forever been known as the "Music City Miracle".

    My father was a great man. He worked hard his entire life to ensure we had a roof over our heads, food on the table and clothes on our backs. He always made sure we were taken care of.

    Stephen Gregory: 7/22/1945 - 09/01/2015.

    I love and miss you pop... I'll always remember the valuable life lessons you taught me, and never forget all the times you were there to pick me up, when I was down.

    RIP...

    Love your son,

    Steven Thomas Gregory...
    It's Always Something...
