Say a prayer for the Zito family

Hi everyone. I hope everyone is having a peacful and lovely holiday. I just wanted to pass on some sad news from my friend Pavlos. His sister is very close friends with Barry Zito and I'm sad to report that Barrry's mother, Roberta, passed away few days ago.

Apparently, she had been sick for some time and finally laid to rest on Tuesday. As an A's fan I am familiar just how close Barry was to his mom and of course many of us can relate to the loss of a parent or close loved one. 

 

I was hoping that we could all say a prayer for Barry and his family in their time of need and remember that there are things more important than baseball.....RIP Roberta.
