My dad and Mr. Wally grew up together and so I knew the family somewhat well. Two weeks after the loss to Rice in Supers, my dad had a major surgery and both Mr. Wally and Wally came and visited us at the hospital. I spent an hour or so just hanging out with him and that was one of the last times I saw him.
I remember everything vividly about that Wednesday morning when I heard about his death. One of toughest days in my young life.
