I left a tribute on Mar.27, 2009 but wanted to let you know I was thinking of you. I picked up Suzanne's Digital Theatre System this morning. She left for down south on Weds.

One of the hero's of my youth and one of the best pinch hitters I ever saw. You hit a grand slam in the first Yankee Game I ever saw at the Stadium. Thanks for the memories Blanch.

Hey Blanch, I saw you hit your only Grand Slam of your carrer in the first Yankee game I went too. You were the best pinch hitter I ever saw. I'll never forget # 38

I am proud to call John my friend.He came to St.Louis in 1991 and he saw a magazine of mine called The 20 Greatest Teams that had a photo of him batting in the 1961 World Series.I told him that I would try to find copies of the magazine for him after he wanted my copy.It took several years to find some and I never forgot my promise.I contacted his wife,Nancy and she said he was playing golf,so I told her that the 4 magazines were in the mail.She called me back 3-4 days later and I could tell a difference in her voice and she said that John had a seizure on the golf course the day that I called and that he had his surgery that day she called me and that the magazines were a comfort to the kids during the surgery.I called john a few weeks later to see how he was and we bacame friends.He came to St.Louis in 2007 and I met him again.I gave him 6 tickets from his 1961 HR games and also gave him 2 wirephotos from the first 2 games at Boston when John had 4 consecutive at bats with a HR.He thanked me for the tickets and photos and hugged me several times because he was trying to see what sizes I wore so that he could send me something.He sent me his letterman's style jacket that the Yankees gave him for attending the 50th Anniversary of the Old-Timers Game at Yankee Stadium on 7/26/1996.I called him immediately and asked him why he sent me such a valuable gift.He said that he knew that I would appreciate the gift and wear it with pride.My wife was with me the day John came to St.Louis and I had John sign a Yankee stain glass piece that he made over and told her that she had such a unique and gifted talent.My wife also laughed when John tried to hug me several times because she realized he was looking for my clothes size and I didn't.I truly miss my friend and consider it an honor to have known him.RIP # 38 and thanks for the memories.

RIP Johnny. You may have had to share the catching spotlight with Yogi and Elston, but you were still a star in our eyes. Please say hello to Elston, Mickey & Roger in the Yankee Stadium in the sky.
