Thanks for teaching me about the past. Thanks for telling me that it was a good thing to remember starting lineups of baseball teams from 30 years in the past. Thanks for not complaining as I kept heading for the "x 796" section of the library as a kid.
Thanks for giving me your Whitey Kurowski autographed baseball. I would have liked it more if you were still here to look at it with me, but we can't arrange life to happen the way we want it to.
