I'm sure you've heard of loved ones spreading ashes of their dearly departed at locations that were close to their hearts. We were contacted recently by a grieving family that had a different idea to keep the memory alive of their loved one.
"Hello! On April 7th Robby Warner passed away from stomach cancer, about 1 yr after his diagnosis, leaving behind his wife and 2 kids (and many loving friends and family members). He was a long time Mets fan!! His family is keeping his memory and spirit alive in a wonderful way. They have painted rocks and are asking loved ones to take them along on their adventures. Check out #livelikerobbydid on Instagram! I am taking a long shot, but never hurts to ask... If we were to mail a rock to The 7 Line, could it take a trip to Citi Field? It would be so amazing for this guy who was definitely Loyal to the Last Out!! Thank you so much from the Wiedemans"
I was more than happy to oblige and have a special place in mind at the ballpark that I hope it can live forever. My heart goes out to Robby's friends and family. May he rest in peace.
If you're hitting the final home game on Thursday at Citi Field, swing by the Marina Lot to see some friends, maybe meet some new ones, and responsibly wash down your sorrows before heading inside.
