May the Lord bless you and keep you always!

I usually don't ask for prayers (here) for (a) strangers, (b) celebrities, and (c) non-Orthodox, but I'll break my habit this once:

Bob Feller is in hospice care.  A model citizen, terrific pitcher, true gentleman, he was at the cream of the crop at a time when there were many honest good players in Baseball.  He's the 3rd oldest living hall-of-famer, and the pride of Cleveland.  He left his pitching career in his prime to serve 3 1/2 years in WWII, and has constantly given back to his community (he's been criticized for giving out too many autographs - rendering them rather worthless for collectors, but priceless for the many kids who looked up to him).

Lord, have mercy.

Lord , have mercy. A real gentleman. Every year in the run up to Baseball Hall of Fame week in nearby Cooperstown, NY, Bob Feller and his wife would drive from Ohio to Cooperstown and stop at minor league ballparks along the way. We will always remember the thrill he gave my son and his little league teammates one July night when he was signing photographs for free for the fans at our local stadium. Even though his playing days were fifty or more years behind them, the children couldn't believe that a real Hall of Famer and hero of their grandparent's time was there and talking baseball to them.

The latest news is that Bob Feller has died.  http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=5924684&campaign=rss&source=ESPNHeadlines

May the memory of the servant of God, Robert, be eternal!

(Interesting that he is the only pitcher ever to throw a no-hitter on opening day.)
