I remember so well, in the summer 1961 when Emile Griffith came to Kankakee, IL to visit Mr. Tom Patti of Patti's corner store. He introduced me to "The Champ." I was so proud and excited to meet Mr. Emile Griffith, the newly crowned Welterweight Champion of the World. I shook his hand and walked down the street with him. It was a proud moment and I'll never forget it.

I watched Mr. Griffith live on the Friday night fights back during the late 1950's and early 1960's. I was a young boy and these were the first professional fights I had ever seen. I was very impressed with Mr. Griffith's boxing skills and how he appeared to keep himself in such excellent shape. I recently watched the television special on his life and was moved by his dignity and humility. He was a great boxer and a greater human being. I hope that you rest in peace sir. I admire you.
