  1. I love,Rick Gregory,humanity,has truly,loss a jewel,we must keep Mr. Gregory,words and deeds alive in the hearts,and minds of our children,for generations to come,my prayers go out to his family.

  2. Jehovah God said that a husband should take care of his wife and children or else his prayers would be hindered-1 Peter 3:7;Matt 19:6;Deut 6:4-9;1 Tim 3:4,5;1 Tim 5:8. Dick Gregory disobeyed Jehovah God so and Satan and the demons loved that he did to support their control over the political arena-Matt 4:8,9;Rev 13;1 Cor 5:19;Rev 12:9,12;2 Cor 4:4; Psalms 83:18;1 Sam 15:22 What Does the Bible Really Teach? chp 14

      To Mr.Gregory,may the spirit of the one true God, continue to bless you and keep you in peace. There is much to say for roads well traveled, keep living, may the Lord breathe upon you.

  3. Dick Gregory was around back in the days of the Civil Rights Movement.

    I wonder what he thinks of all this mess that is happening in this country today
    and how sadly HISTORY has been repeated.

    I hope Mr. Gregory fully recovers from his illness. I look forward to seeing him
    and hearing his political opinions.
