RIP Harry

Harry Kalas and Richie Ashburn provided the sound track to my childhood.

And now Harry also has left.

I am happy, though, that Harry was finally (after having to wait a mere 28 years) was able to call the final out for a victorious Phillies team in the World Series, and that he died as it seemed he was determined to, working up to the last minute to broadcast a game that brings joy to so many.

Thank you, Harry, for all that you gave to us.

And thank you also to Harry's family. You gave up time with your husband and father so that we could have a bit of him. My condolences on your loss, and my thanks for all of that time.
