He greatly enhanced our beloved Steelers !!!
He enhanced the NFL !!!
He enhanced the Pittsburgh sports scene !!!
Although cannot say that he was a close

Steeler dedication and enthusiasm,
especially at pre-season training camps -
Olean, New York, as well as California

Please accept my sincere condolences. At Psalm 56:8 David pleaded to God: "Do put my tears in your skin bottle. Are they not in your book? Like David I know that God is aware of your pain and what you are going through emotionally. He will give you what you need to live each day.

To the family of Mr Rooney, please accept our sincere condolences. We are so saddened to hear of your loss. Mr Rooney was an extraordinary talented and compassionate man. May the God who "binds up the brokenhearted" & "comforts all who mourn" sustain your family during this challenging time. (Isaiah 61:1&2)
