Patty you have my condolences and prayers for your father’s eternal peace in heaven. I have lots and lots of fond memories from the Dover baseball diamonds. Seeing your father reminded me of him always encouraging the kids on the teams he coached that there were “ducks on the pond”, meaning base runners for the batter to drive in!! I also remember him being very nice and respectful to me, even though at the time I didn’t fully understand or appreciate it. Hope you’re well. Allow God’s comfort surround you and your family at this time. Steve Burgess
