Bill Belichick, head coach of the New England Patriots, issued a statement about the passing of Myra Kraft, the wife of Pats owner Robert Kraft who passed away at age 68 after a battle with cancer.
"On behalf of the entire Patriots football operation, we mourn the passing of Myra Kraft. As much support as her quiet but unmistakable presence provided us in the competitive arena and as much as I personally will miss her warm embraces before and after each game, Myra shined brightest in a much broader arena. In the humanitarian arena, her generosity through philanthropy was admired and appreciated by all. She made a permanent impression on hundreds of coaches, players, staff and our families as a model of grace, strength and giving. Myra's vision and example will impact and remain very much with our team forever." (via WEEI)
