Thank you all for the information. I have spoken to Ridge Hooks & he let me know that the ceremony will be held on July 14 in Liberty, MO. I have also spoken with Keith Parker. I will do whatever is necessary to obtain the required information. Ya'll just let me know what I need to do! I'll be there...wouldn't miss is for the world!!

As I expressed to Keith, Jeff & I would love to have copies of any pictures that you have of Daddy playing ball. We have some of him when he was younger, but we don't have any of him playing in recent years. I watched him play at some of the local tournaments, but those of you who knew my Daddy know that he "ran his mouth" just a little bit (HA) to intimidate the other teams...& I tended to cover my eyes & grit my teeth alot , afraid he was going to get hurt. I told Jeff that now that Daddy is in Heaven, he can hit & run like he did when he was 20. We both laughed at that & said that to hear Daddy tell it, he was better at 60 than he was at 20; at 60 he had MASTERED hitting it over the fence so that he didn't HAVE to run the bases.

Thank you again for all of your prayers & kind words. If you have stories or pictures that you'd be willing to share, please contact me at or 318-680-1719.

Larry...I met you at my Dad's funeral service a few weeks back. You have no idea how much it meant to our family for you guys to attend! I always knew my Daddy was a very special person who had an impact on many people's lives; I just didn't realize the extent until the awful tragedy occurred. My brother & I appreciate your prayers & support.

At the graveside service, a man approached me & told me that my Daddy would be inducted into the Hall of Fame this summer. Do you happen to know who this man was or how I can contact him to find out when the induction will occur? Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated. Thanks again...Sonya Mercer Tripp & Jeff Mercer, LA
