Received this e-mail today:
Thank you for asking about my husband. I almost threw away
your note but but I saw Redszone in the preview and knew who you were referring to. My husband suffered a major stroke in May of this year and passed away soon after. He was a lifelong fan of the Reds and followed them online since he got very little news of his hometown in local news here.
Thank you for being a friend to him, he very much enjoyed his Reds friends.
Mrs. Marie Elledge
