I had hoped you were to be a big baseball star pitcher here on Earth (Indians, of course) but I believe that instead God needed you to start for the Angels (not that horrible team in California,but the place where there is no pain). It hurts, but I know you’re in a better place now, so throw a fastball for Gramps, alright? 6-20-2020 I’ll never forget ya Zay.
