With my family's multiple generations in St. Louis, I grew up, in West Virginia, with the Cardinals as part of the family DNA. To grow up hearing about Stan Musial from my grandmother, aunts, uncle (who played in the Brooklyn Dodgers and Cardinal organizations - just before and after WWII), and my parents, Stan was someone to look up to and admire. And, now and in recent years, it has been good to learn of his faith, his family, and the commitment to community. He'll be missed but his legacy lives on in so many ways.

Stan was my Dad's favorite player. I am happy to say that i got to see Stan at the end of his career and that favorite thing worked its way to me as well. My kids are third generation Cardinal fans which isn't always easy living in NY. My son was a big AP fan so when I showed him what Stan did it kind of opened his eyes as to not only greatness on the field but even a greater person off it. There has always been one thing that made me a bit sad was that in 1982 I was working for NBC and because I had access to the stadium before the second game I was able to get Stan's autograph on a World Series ball. The thing that made it sad was that my father had passed away and wasn't with me that day. I know he would have gotten such a kick out of it. Not to mention just being at the game.

That's great, David! My father had this kind of relationship with Jack Nicklaus and with the earlier great golfers when he was a caddy as a kid.

My dad and I saw the 5 home runs against the Giants and Stan's last game in '63, as well as many in between. Stan surely was the idle of every boy that played baseball in St. Louis as a kid. Dave '41

I have a long list of relatives who will be standing in the receiving line in heaven waiting to greet Stan and talk baseball.
I remember meeting him when I worked for Eastern Airlines when Stan and his wife were flying to Florida in the late 60's. I handed him the St Louis Sunday paper to read.

After listeningto the funeral Mass of Stan "THE Man" Musial last Saturday over KMOX--no TV of it here--I becamw more convinced than ever we had a walking "true to life" SAINT among us. I wonder what it would take-- Cardinal Dolan perhaps--to get him declared a SAINT in the Roman Catholic Church, a civilian who practiced his Faith and held it as a number one priority in his life although being a civilian and a professional baseball player? I don't think we ever had one like him or maybe, never will. Like all "SAINTS" he would be a model of inspiration for all us Catholics.

I got to know Stan vis his son Dick and CBC while announcing the CBC football games.

Stan "The Man" became my childhood hero in 1948 when I was 7 and at the orphanage in Des Peres, Mo. Got to shake his hand when I was 11, I am now 71 Stan "The Man" will still be my life's hero until I pass away.

I always enjoyed the Cardinal ball games at Sportsman Park with my father in the early 50's and with other friends into the60's. Stan was my favorite then and still is today. I was blessed to see many of his hits and even a three home run game with two over the right field screen. A GREAT MAN in every sense. Please accept our deepest sympathy.

When the Lord calls our loved ones home, he leaves a gift of memories in exchange. What great memories you have for this beloved man. My Aunt Grace Kurtz did Lil hair in the past. I can remember my aunt Grace telling us how wonderful Stan & Lil were. Stan will live in my heart forever. Thank you for sharing him with us.

Mr. Musial was always a boyhood hero of mine despite my being a Cub fan. I have the treasured Stan Musial autographed ball, bat and 1954 enlarged Saturday Evening Post cover. Thanks for a "truely wonderful life".
