On Friday the sport of baseball lost the great ambassador it ever had, the great legend, Ernie Banks. I am heartbroken at the realization the world is now a smaller, darker place without Ernie here, but I console myself with the face that his Spirit will shine on forever & will encourage others from the world of spirit. Perhaps one day, soon - you never know - he may help the Cubs get to a World Series. Ernie, hopefully before I die, please. Just ONE. You changed my life & helped me to overcome tremendous obstacles to get to where I am today. I am blessed to have been able to tell you that I OWE IT ALL TO YOU. God bless you & RIP, Mr. Cub. Your legacy will never be forgotten. For video coverage go to: http://wgntv.com/2015/01/24/the-legacy-of-ernie-banks-mr-cub/ where WGN-TV of Chicago has posted some lovely tributes. If this is your first time visiting my blog, thank you & to all of Ernie's fans out there, let's play two!
