    My thoughts and prayers are with your family. Remember my first year in little league baseball? Well I do. You asked me if I wanted to play in the championship game and as a nervous 9 year old I replied “No, I want to win!” Thanks for your guidance and philosophy on the game I love. Tag them all Coach, you are now home with the Lord.
