Not sure what to say?

Orlando Woolridge #32 you were a force to reckon with, I like to remember you on one of 4 NOTRE DAME teams you served and led on. My personal favorite 79-80 team, your junior year. How about this college basketball lineup.


what a team! Orlando you and your team at Notre Dame achieved greatness!!

Thank you for sharing a part of your life with us. Godspeed.

Take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you.

Orlando has great natural talents and soared to the basketball hoop with grace. We are so fortunate to see him display his skills and bring so many memories to the many fans who watched him perform.

My prayers to the coaches family. I first met coach Woolridge during my first season as an LA Spark. He was a very energetic and passionate coach. He will always be remembered by me for his desire and will to win. He had a play the size of the dictionary (lol), but that showed how much he invested into the game...Rest Coach, for you will forever be missed.

This is like one of those happy/sad moments. Happy because he is sleeping in the arms of Jesus and sad because we will miss him very much on this side. But the good news is that we will see him again in that great RESSURECTION. Praying and asking God to comfort the family continually. It is well. Orlando is not in anymore pain. So elated thatI had the opportunity to spend time with him before his death as his frind/home girl and Professional Social Worker to let him know that I loved him...

This is surreal. It seems like just yesterday we met at Baby Guess and started dressing Zach for Laker games.
You all have become part of our family and we love you deeply.
Our heartfelt prayers are with you and we are here for anything you need.
