5 condolences: baseball

With the World Series kicking off today, baseball is on our minds.  From pick-up games on the street to little league and the majors, this week we share 5 condolence messages about America’s favorite pastime:

  1. To the Family, sorry to hear of Bill’s passing. I remember we played baseball in the alley behind the house on Main Street when we were about 8 or 9. most of the games would end in a fight, but the next day we would be playing ball again.  [Published in Courier Press]
  2. Uncle Jim, It was our pleasure knowing you over the years. I always appreciated when you picked on my NY Yankees.  Especially when you mailed me the headlines when they actually lost. [Published by Goodbody Mortuary]
  3. I am so sorry to hear the news about your mother. I’ve known her since grade school. We always had fun, she was one heck of a baseball player, she actually knocked me out with a line drive right to the head (I was pitching) after that no one wanted to pitch to her because she could hit the ball out into the field. I will always have very fond memories of her and our time together growing up.  [Published in Morning Call]
  4. I am sorry to hear the news about my little brother, whom I have known since 1942 when I was 7 and he was 5. We won the city little league baseball championship in 1953. May god bless you and your family.  [Published in the Orlando Sentinel]
  5. Mr. Shea was such a great influence to me when I played for Hi Hat Foods in the Elmwood Little League during the 1950s. I still have the Hi Hat Foods team baseball picture hanging in my home office. He was always a true gentleman. Some of the things he taught me, I now teach to my grandson who plays little league baseball in Las Vegas. May he rest in peace.  [Published in The Providence Journal]

About Katie

I joined Legacy.com in 2002 as a part-time content screener and now serve as Director of Operations, overseeing Legacy’s day-to-day operations (Guest Book screening, obituary processing, customer service, and client service). I grew up in California, the daughter of a psychologist and a minister. My parents instilled in me the importance of listening to and caring about others. One of the things I appreciate most about working at Legacy.com is that I am able to have a small part in easing people's pain during one of the most difficult times in their lives. In my life outside of Legacy, I enjoy baking treats (and bringing them to the office to share), playing the piano, reading, taking pictures, tending to our vegetable & herb gardens, trying out new restaurants and foods, spending time with my husband, Chuck (whom I met at Legacy) and our kids, Brett Jr. & Josie, and playing with our hound dogs, Mugsy and Bo Jangles.
