One of the persons that I have watched over the years is Katie Granju. Back when she was at a television station then knoxnews and now with Ackermann PR. I know of her, I do not think that I have ever talked to her and certainly to my knowledge have never met her. I have watched the father (Chris Granju) of their three children at County Commission meetings when he would answer questions about storm water, runoff issues. Again, I never introduced myself to Mr. Granju. So, I am an observer.
Today, I began seeing some discussions on twitter and facebook about Henry Granju. As I began to read some blog entries, facebook and other entities, I discovered that Henry Granju passed away yesterday. I discovered this evening that Henry was assaulted a month or so ago, there were some other complications that resulted in a month long struggle for life. I have now read most of Katie’s blog entries for the past month at her blog, Mamapundit. Early this evening, I joined the Rest In Peace We Love You Henry Granju Facebook page.
My wife and I have three teenage children (19, almost 16 and 14). I chose not blog about my family. It is my decision in an effort to shield and protect my family from the attacks that I suffer for my opinion.
Henry’s attack was senseless. I pray that the ones guilty of assaulting Henry are brought to justice. My heart breaks for Katie, Chris, the brother and sister and the extended family that Henry leaves behind.
Henry, as I have never met your parents. I certainly never met you. But, my desire is for you to Go Rest High on that Mountain. You deserve rest and peace.
