27) Raymond Berry

Raymond Berry was Johnny Unitas’ right-hand receiver, and one of the most fan-friendly players of all-time. Note: Berry’s daughter responded on his behalf.

I was honored a myriad to have heard on behalf of a primary figure in the NFL’s 100th anniversary from the Baltimore Colts in the Johnny Unitas days. This response was actually from Mr. Berry’s daughter, Ashley, which was expected, due to Mr. Berry’s current condition, and which I reflected in the letter. However, Mr. Berry is always someone who always cared very, very, much for the fans, and has always been one to answer fan mail, so I am just as honored to receive this response on Mr. Berry’s behalf.

I thank Ashley Berry Bass for taking the time to offer her kind, spiritually uplifting words, and most of all, her prayers, to respond to my letter on Mr. Berry’s behalf, as well as to remind me that God has a plan for me. I need to work on, as the attached “Sine Qua Non” sheet states, living my life more for Christ, because I cannot fumble away my life, and continuing to find ways to make a difference in others’ lives in this opportunity God has given me from the gift (as I am viewing it) He has given me in beating cancer.
