Heaven's "Notre Dame Section" Has One More


Jody Bailey (Dallas, TX) -- loved Notre Dame more than most, as you can see by the pictures above.  Unfortunately, Jody lost his battle with cancer earlier this week. Tomorrow morning at 10 AM CT -- Jody's family and countless friends will gather at St. Pius X Catholic Church, to celebrate a life well lived.

Fittingly, Jody asked to be buried in his favorite Notre Dame shirt.

I want to thank Jody's good friend Tim Mathews -- who just retired after 32 years of service in the Military -- for reaching out to me to share his buddy's love for Notre Dame.

Heaven's "Notre Dame Section" just got a good one today!

Top photo:  Jody and his loving wife Angie.
