J.H. Williams Dies

I know you all have seen this....

BOSTON -- John Henry Williams, the son of Hall of Famer Ted Williams who pushed to have his father's body frozen, died late Saturday of leukemia in a hospital in Los Angeles, an attorney for Ted Williams' family said. He was 35.

Peter Sutton said Williams died at UCLA Medical Center with family members at his bedside. Sutton said John Henry Williams' sister, Claudia Williams, and attorney, Eric Abel, informed him of the death by phone.

But I was reading another article written about this...and Mark Ferrell (JH Williams brother-in-law) had a very interesting quote...

Mark Ferrell wrote:"John Henry Williams spent 35 years antagonizing people," Ferrell said. "He was a cheat, a thief and a liar. He was just a miserable human being. The Bible says honor your father and you will live long. Well, he didn't honor his father, and God came calling."

:-? ...I am beginning to believe there was some family problems going on here....

All is not well with that family. My condolences to them though. :,-(
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

I saw that quote on PTI today. Man, family problems is an understatement. Wilbon was ripping JH and talking about what a great quote it was. Man that is a funny show and this is a messed up family.
