Shades of Glory: The Story of the Negro Leagues and African-American Baseball, by Lawrence D. Hogan is exactly what its title promises. If you want to learn a lot about the history of black people playing baseball in America, Shades of Glory is for you.
With everything that was happening with Ufi, I haven’t written much about myself lately. So, here is an update.
I have been thinking about writing a final letter To Ufi since before his passing. Until now, I hadn’t felt ready. With his ashes now resting in his favorite place, the kind of day outside he would have liked, quiet inside, and the belief that I can do this now, here we go.
Joe Posananski’s The Soul of Baseball: a Road Trip Through Buck O’Neil’s America struck many cords with me.
Crisis is another in Robin Cook’s Jack Stapleton Laurie Montgomery series. Like the others I have read, I enjoyed Crisis. But there are a couple of things about the series starting to bother me.
Yesterday at 4:33 PM PDT we said our final goodbye to Ufi. Though his loss is devastating, his death afforded him the dignity I really wanted him to have.
The day we didn’t want to come but we know is needed is here. Today, we will be saying goodbye to Ufi.
I believe I have found the in-home service we will use. As of now, I’m planning to help Ufi end his journey on Thursday at around 4:30.
With my heart breaking and tears rolling down my cheeks, I wanted to let all of you know I have decided the fairest thing to do is help Ufi end his journey soon.
