It’s just the unthinkable. Roy Halladay doing what he loves the most, besides playing baseball, flying. I️t is with sad and utter disbelief to write this but Roy Halladay has passed away in a plane crash in the Gulf Of Mexico. He was 40 years old.
Halladay was the captain of the flight and I️t is not reported how the plane crashed or where the plane was going.
This is just the worst news in the world. I’m just utterly heartbroken over this. Halladay was one of, if not the best pitcher in this baseballs generation. But besides that, this world just lost an amazing human being.
All I can really say at this matter in time is, tomorrow is never guaranteed. You can be doing the one thing you love to do in life and I️t can take you from everything you have. Love life to the fullest. You only have one and I️t is short. Whether you live to 40 or live to 104, life goes by in an instant. Enjoy your family, enjoy your friends, don’t stress about the little stuff. Work hard, love, care for others and make sure you do everything you want to do. Don’t have any regrets. Once it’s over, it’s over. You don’t get I️t back. Death is permanent. Enjoy your life.
I pray for Roy Halladay’s family, his wife, his children, his friends and everyone he loved. This is just incredibly sad.
You never know when the last time you’re gonna see someone. Tell your family and your loved ones that you love them. I️t might be the smallest thing in the world but it means the world.
RIP to an absolute legend. You will be missed Doc!
