Although it has been more than 20 years since I worked with Prentis in the sports department of the old Journal, I will never forget the good humor and rock-steady professionalism of this man we all loved. Today, in the wake of his untimely passing, the world seems a little less bright. May God bless his family and all who are reeling from this tragic loss. Rest in peace, my friend. You made our world down here a better place.
