    Sundays were for the “old guys”. Growing up, I spent every summer Sunday at the Odd Fellows Ball Park just down the road from my house, watching “old man softball”. I didn’t sit in the bleachers, heck, no! I got what I thought was the best seat in the house! I got to sit in the dugout! PJ Lally, Gary Pickle, Kevin Guffey, just to name a few, kept me entertained and out of trouble. Listening to their camaraderie, the jokes (probably not fit for girls ears), the bickering with the local umps, made for the perfect Sunday.
    As I grew older, my trips to the ball park as a spectator lessened. I was now on the field. And guess who was almost always sitting in at center field in a lawn chair in the back of a pickup truck…PJ Lally. He’d hoop and holler at great plays and good hits.
    The ball field turned into the ball court. Now, I know, he was there to watch Levi’s game, but he still shouted and cheered during mine. After games, he’d congratulate me, give me a hug, and tell me how great I did.
    Now the Odd Fellows Ball Fields, just like me, are all grown up. I’m sure the ball fields, like me, would love to go back to those summer Sundays of “old man softball”. Rest In Peace, PJ.

    Karla, Levi and family- you all will be in my thoughts and prayers. PJ was one of a kind and when I think of him his laughter is what comes to mind.

    DEAR KARLA, LEVI AND FAMILY; I find that words can not express fully in words my sympathy to you and the family. P.J. was a very good person and man. I have so many good memories over the past 60 years or so with P.J. and I will miss him greatly , Friday evening will not be the same. Thoughts and prayers are with you, and loving memories to carry you through. Ronny

    Rikki used to call him “Peaches”. She was two when we first met you guys. He got us tickled one day when we were standing around talking about our favorite candy and he said he liked a Reece’s cups “for the energy It gives me”.
    He was always quick to offer a cup of coffee whenever I’d stop off in your yard to drink out of your spigot. Mike loved him. My brother in law, George always preferred his company on the porch to our stuffy occasions.
    Every time I’d run by I’d look to see if he’d be sitting on the porch and if he was, he’d hollar out something about what a nice day it was.
    I think we take for granted that people are just going to be there. A lot of us are going to miss him.

    Carla and Levi and the kids, We are so sorry about PJ, he offered to lend his scaffolding, and help me remove some windows, even though he was busy, and not feeling well. The whole community will miss him, your cousin, Joe and Linda, and Kim Smith
