Sad news

Not only has Kirby Puckett died at 45. Now Dana Reeves is dead at 44 from lung cancer.

Now if you know anything about baseball, you know Kirby played for the Minnesota Twins and was a good role model for young players until his career was cut short by an eye disease. He was struck down by a stroke. He'll be sorely missed.

Dana Reeves came to the forefront of the public eye when her husband, Christopher Reeves, sustained a paralysing neck injury during a fall from a horse. She stood by him in his fight for spinal cord research. After she lost him, she was diagnosed with lung cancer. She lost her fight with that terrible disease.

Prayers go out to both families. Your loved ones made the world a better place for the brief moment they were here.

I saw Kirby play baseball in the "Twinkie Dome" it was a great experience. So sad for the Reeve children to loose both parents at such a young age. Thoughts and prayers go out to both families.

And the Reeves. That's so devastating.
