I couldn’t imagine a better ambassador to the next realm.

Thus far 2016 has proved to be an absolute abomination when it comes to loosing some of our greatest musicians, and now the greatest boxer ever to live has moved on to the next realm.  Muhammad Ali, born Cassius Clay, lost his battle to Parkinson’s yesterday in a Phoenix, AZ. hospital.

I never saw him live, but my father was fortunate enough to see him fight as Cassius Clay back when he was climbing the ranks.  Toledo Ohio was actually quite well known for its boxing with its proximity to Detroit, Chicago, and Cleveland.  Imagine being fortunate enough to see Cassius in his prime!?  How fortunate.

I have so much to say, yet I find myself speechless.  My condolences to his family.  I hope that he arranged to have his brain studied for Parkinson’s research so we can find a cure for such a terrible disease.
