For those who are "into" such things as Indy style motor racing, the sport and I personally have suffered another loss.
Tom Carnegie, the "Voice of the Indianapolis 500" from 1946 until 2006 died today at the age of '91. I've already spoken with his wife. She is insisting on a quiet service. I so hope she gets her wish but because he was so famous in the racing world, I would be somewhat anxious that such will be the case.
I am now so very thankful that they got to meet Fran and I got to see them both again this past August.
The Indiananpolis Motor Speedway is I understand, plannning a big memorial event probably to coincide with this year's race in May.
Having grown up in the Indianapolis area, and being fortunate enough to attend the race as a youngster, and of course, listen to it on the radio many, many times, I remember Tom well. His passing certainly is a loss for the racing world. God bless!
