But I am reminded of a man who always visited kids in hospitals, many of them terminally ill.

He would arrive quietly and unannounced, away from the cameras.

He was also known to visit hospitals on the road. Once in Chicago to a kid who had just sent him a fan letter.

I was told by retired critical care nurse in Pittsburgh that she observed him holding the hand of a child who only had a couple of days to live, and could not speak.
The child had a peaceful and happy smile as he stared at the caring face of his hero.

He was one of the few sports stars who realized it wasn't all about him.

"Solo Dios hace al hombre feliz" he used to say.

Right you are, Roberto.
