Area Grandfather Dies at "Just The Right Time"

The 84 year old grandfather of Jim Daniels died at "Just the right time," according to Daniels.

"His death couldn't have come at a better time," said Daniels as he relaxed at the memorial service of his grandfather John Daniels who was a sportscaster and local personality in the small town of Poplar Bluff, Missouri. "I live in Seattle and don't come to the Midwest but once or twice a year. So when I happened to be visiting with my father and learned that [grandpa] had had a stroke or something then I was initially thinking, 'Great, looks like I'll have to extend my vacation and have to work twice as hard when I return." Jim popped a cheese ball into his mouth and smiled. "But no! I didn't have to cancel a thing because he up and died quick and as soon as this [the memorial service] is over I get on the first flight back to Seattle. It's perfect!"
