We've Lost Another Great Man

First and foremost, The Greedy Pinstripes is a Yankees blog. A place to share information and thoughts regarding our favorite baseball team. Actually, they are my favorite team... period.

But things happen in our lives that transcend the Yankees, and even the game of baseball.

Back in June I lost my father. He had been fighting illness for years, but his body finally gave out. My father was tough, and I know that many others would have succumbed to that illness long before him. But the thing about that situation, even though it was the toughest thing I've ever had to deal with, is that I was able to prepare for it.

That's not the case for one of my best friends, who lost his father yesterday morning. His father was a great man, who will be missed by many... many... people. I'll never forget how he treated me like one of his own children, and did so with a smile on his face at all times.

Leslie Noble will never be forgotten, and will live on in our hearts forever.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
