First off, I know this would be better suited for BOL, but I'm banned from there, so if any of you Bama guys wants to repost, feel free.
My grandfather, Mike Mizerany, passed away today at 11:40 am CST. Big Mike played football for Alabama from 1948-1950 and also played baseball for the Crimson Tide. He was an All-SEC performer in both sports and was captain of the 1950 football team that finished 9-2 under Head Coach Red Drew. He was quite possibly the best man I've ever known and couldn't have represented Alabama better. Some of you may remember him being honored with other WWII vets last year at halftime of the UA/Miss State game.
RIP Mike Mizerany
A group of former University of Alabama football players who served in World War II will be honored just before tonights kickoff in celebration of their achievements both on and off the field.

How did you end up an AU fan?

Sorry for your loss.
Both parents graduated from AU.
Sorry for your loss. God bless you and your family.
Sorry for your loss! Prayers sent for you and your family.
Sorry for your loss miz.
GOD Bless him more for being a WWII Vet.
Sorry for your loss, bud. I lost my grandfather six years ago, of whom I was very close to, so I know the feeling. I started a thread on BOL about it.

miz, sorry for your loss. It is tough to loose a grandfather that you are close to.
He was a WWII vet. You could have stopped there and he'd still be an amazing man. The rest=cherries on top. So sorry for your loss but I can tell you are a blessed individual for having had him in your life. Prayers to you and yours.
Thank you to everyone for the support. It's funny, everyone always associates him with Alabama football, but in the last few months of his life, he gave me such perspective on this rivalry and football in general. The man was profound without even knowing it.
Anyway, thanks guys. Upvotes for all ITT (Yes, even Weedline cause we cool. People ask me that question all the time).

Sorry to hear miz. Sounds like he was a great person, cherish all of the time you were able spend with him, it will make the tough moments a little bit easier. About 15 minutes ago I was thinking about my grandmother I lost about two years ago who I was very close with. Seeing your post reminds me that it's sad, but how wonderful it was to have had her in my life for so long. Celebrate those great moments you had with him and keep your spirits up!
