Sheppard family grateful

The family of the late Yankee Stadium public address announcer Bob Sheppard expressed their gratitude to the people, many of them Yankees fans, who mourned his passing last month.

“Our family would like to thank everyone for the outpouring of condolences and support,” the statement read. “We continue to be touched by the kind words and wonderful memories that so many people have shared with us.

“We are humbled that Bob holds a special place in the hearts of so many individuals – from fans of the New York Yankees and New York football Giants to former students at John Adams High School and St. John’s University. Your kindness has inspired us during this difficult time.”
