You might get teary-eyed reading this.
Don Cherry took to Twitter to share his memories of Rob Ford and express his sympathies to the Ford family.
Let's just say it's a must-read and Don really nails it.
“I don’t know, maybe it’s me, when I hear these media types go on and on and on about what a great guy Rob Ford was now that he’s dead.”
“I wonder, where were these people when Rob needed them when the lefties were piling on him. Rob’s whole life was for helping people.”
“Sure he had his faults, don’t we all? No public servant was hounded thru life like Rob. Reporters spying over his fence, police with helicopters following him, people in TV popping up to accost him as he entered his house, the list goes on.”
“Rob dedicated his life to inner city kids to have a life with football to help them. He spent thousands of his own money to help them and hours and hours to coach them. And when he tried to raise money for the football teams and the kids they took him to court cause of the letterhead.”
“They took away from him the kids he loved and his coaching job so he went into a state of depression.”
“How about the media, playing up every mistake he ever made. Even when he fell down throwing the football, they must have shown that a hundred times. What got me, they reported this stuff with glee. It’s the old story, they reported the plane crash with a gleam in their eye. The left wing kooks had a field day, they showed no mercy.”
“Rob helped hundreds of people nobody knows about. I remember when I went to city council, to put the mayor’s chain of office around Rob’s neck, when he became mayor, I couldn’t believe the hate towards Rob from those left wing kooks. He was the people’s mayor and a great guy.”
“Rob had a lot of friends and I know we all send our thoughts to his kids, wife, mom and Doug. Rest in peace Rob.”
Now that's something special.
