Classy Move by Tom Grieve

I generally only post on Burnt Orange Nation, but I'm daily lurker of this site.  While everything generally gets covered--and re-covered--here, I have a fairly personal anecdote involving Tom Grieve that I thought was worth sharing.

My dad's aunt was a member of the Texas Rangers Women's Club for over 27 years.  She attended nearly every organizational event and function and was unyielding in her support for the team.  Sadly, she died earlier this week.  This morning, her family received the following letter from Tom Grieve:

 

Hello. 

I'm very sorry to learn of Mary's passing.  She was a loyal friend who loved the Rangers, not only in the good times, but also the bad.  She was always so thoughtful, often calling or writing when I had my surgery.  I appreciated that so much.  There weren't many Ranger functions that she didn't attend, from Christmas at the park to the mid-winter banquet.  I've lost a nice friend and the Rangers have lost one of their most loyal fans ever.  We'll all miss her very much.

Sincerely,

Tom Grieve

 

While you may love him or hate him as a commentator, I thought this was a very thoughtful gesture that really meant a lot to my family.
