Mara Passing...

was on and read this, thought it was a cool statement from one class act to anouther...
Statement from Dan Rooney on the Passing of Wellington Mara

Wellington Mara was a special person. He brought dignity to everyone he touched. He loved his wife, Ann, and his wonderful family. He truly was a Giant in the NFL and in life. He meant so much in forming the foundation and standards of the National Football League. He was kind to all and treated everyone with class. His integrity was in the forefront in every action and decision he made. His contributions to the NFL are second to none.

The Rooney family has been friends of the Maras for four generations. We’ve had excellent times together. Our relationship has been meaningful and enjoyable and the games have been fun.

Wellington was a mentor for me and a counsel I could call on. He was there to help and offer advice that could work for the League and anyone who might need assistance.

We will all miss Wellington Mara as we celebrate his wonderful life.

God Bless and keep him.
