Not sure what to say?

It is with great sadness that I learned of Bill Buckner's passing months ago. I was in high school in a Chicago suburb when Bill was on the Cubs. He was an incredible hitter with a very low strikeout percentage. He was one of the best clutch hitters in all of baseball in my 56 year old lifetime. He did this practically on one leg. There are many many people in the Chicago area that recognize how great Bill Buckner was as a baseball player. 22 seasons. Amazing statistics. Life is...

My condolences as you mourn the loss of your dear loved one. Our prayer is that you find comfort and hope during this most difficult time.

Blessings ...

I would like to express my deepest condolences to the family for the loss of your loved one, who will be remembered for his contribution to history and his athletic abilities. May you find comfort and strength in God during this time of mourning.

You were truly a great baseball player! Rest in LOVE and "play ball" with other greats in heaven! Aloha Bill!!!

As a young man in high school I met Bill Buckner at John Cole's Gym in Scottsdale Arizona. He was rehabilitating his ankle and I was working on my legs as a kicker and punter. We would often challenge each other on the bicycle in the gym! Bill became my favorite player and I am excited to hear about his commitment to Christ. Condolences to Jody and the family.

I have remained a Chicago Cubs fan my entire life and for me growing up as a kid Bill Buckner was one of my favorite Cubs players of all time. I was fortunate enough to meeting him in 2009 and he validated everything I always thought about him, a gentleman and all round good person. RIP 22 and condolences to the Buckner family.

Thank you for being my friend. You always said that God brought me to Boise to meet you and I am so glad He did. We had some great talks, but I think of you every step I take because I hear your voice Dont limp! See you when I get there

Will always be my favourite Cub of all time. Rest In Peace 22, you will never be forgotten.
