RIP Seven Points Greg,...
He was dubbed Seven Points Greg almost from the moment he first sat on the bench. A bench that was removed because people that think too highly of themselves, didn't think Greg should be sitting on it. I'm reminded of a Bible verse,... Hebrews 13:2, "Be not forgetful to entertain strangers. For thereby some have entertained angels unawares."
I knew when he asked for a couple of dollars, what he probably wanted with it. I didn't care. He wanted a ride one day, so I gave it to him and let him out at his house. He most always had a smile and something to say that would make your mind go deep in thought and have to think about what he just said.
He will no longer sit on the corner at the intersection and wave to passersby. He won't be there for the ones who purchased a burger or drink for him. He was pretty well taken care of on that corner, except by those people that think too highly of themselves and remove benches. Shame on you.
Rip Seven Points Greg. You will be missed.
