Thank You From Gruehls Family - aruehls - 12-29-2011 12:08 AM

My younger brother couldn't help but notice that many of the comments posted on our father's guest book were from members of this forum. Curious to see if there was something posted about Dad on this board, he did a Google search for Bearcat Banter. It brought tears to our eyes to see "The Gregory A. Ruehlmann Sr. Memorial Cincinnati Board" as one of the results. What a simple, yet extremely meaningful act.

Our father was a man of many talents, not the least of which was having a razor-sharp wit and an amazing way with words...often tear-inducing, even for grown men (as many of you seem to be familiar with). When Dad had to retire because of his arthritis and back issues, there were few things that brought him true comfort and happiness like this forum. Unable to eviscerate his opponents in the court of law, he was able to do so here in the Court of 'Cats. I think you all would be happy to know that you were often the topic of conversation, especially when he had a particularly witty retort. Dad loved hosting those of you from out of town, and meeting with those of you who live here in Cincy.

Thank you so very much for providing him with this honor, an honor he would be so proud of. And thank you from his family, for providing us with another reminder of how wonderful our father was and how many people he impacted.

A great man who touched many lives, often those he never met. His name will be synonymous with Bearcat pride forever for those who knew him if only for a glimpse. God bless.

Thank you. Your dad helped me out with words of encouragement during my troubled time over this past Spring/Summer. Definitely a great guy indeed. Keep your head up, and my condolences to you and your family.

There are people that were meant to shine more brightly than others. Your Dad was one of them, Amanda. Praying for the Ruehlmann family and wishing you all a lifetime of vivid, wonderful memories of Greg.
