Default Re: Funerals of the great's

In the book "The fearless Harry Greb", there is a photo that touches me greatly.
It is a photo of Harry Greb lying in repose in his casket at his wake...So,so sad for me
to see hyper fighter so still only in death...The best description of Harry Greb was uttered by Ring Lardner, " Harry Greb in the ring resembled a man who had just burst
loose from his strait jacket "! Pittsburgh was in a state of mourning for it's greatest
fighting son...
