The Passing of a Great Man.

My Dad passed away this weekend and although it has been an incredibly sad experience my heart has been lifted by the outpouring of love and support shown by all our friends and family. I can't even begin to tell you how much we appreciate it.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in his memory to:

Hope Hospice - Hospice House North
2430 Diplomat Parkway East
Cape Coral, Florida 33909

You can visit their website here: http://www.hopehospice.org/

Make sure you root for the Patriots today. He was counting on them going all the way and I'm sure he'll be watching.

Jerry & Alicia,

My heart goes out to you and your family.

Red Sox Nation lost one of their greatest fans. He's probably chatting with the Splendid Splinter in heaven now. I loved the stories of how the two of you would be on the phone during the Red Sox and Patriot games. Those memories will be with you forever. The two of you were truly blessed to have the relationship that you had.

If you can judge a man by the qualtiy of his children, it can thus be said your Dad must of been a great guy.

Thanks guys, we appreciate it.

After Sunday's game I kept thinking I had to call him. That's when it hits me the most.

You're right though, he'll be with me for every down and at bat. It's a great way to keep him in our hearts.

Thanks again,
