  First to the family of Owen Hart from my family our deepest condolences. When I think of Owen Hart, no one match comes to mind because every match he was involved in was truly great. Owen's matches were always exciting. There was clearly alot of skill, never a dull moment. When something like this happens it makes us stand up and realize that these men and women are not invisible, an important lesson to us all. We will miss the fast paced wrestling matches that Owen served up and more importantly the person that Owen was, and the role model he created for our children.

  I remember when I used to read about Owen when he was in stampede wrestling and him and Brian Pillman were coming up it is a tragic shame that both are now lost my prayers go out to to the Hart family and all of Owens fans.
 Michael Meyers
  I would like to pray for Owen Hart. My condolences to the Hart family. This is a tragedy, and he will be surely missed. Owen...I'm sure you're in a better place now, and say Hi to Brian and Rick for us. RIP Owen Hart.
 Andrew Summy
  I havent really watched wrestling long, but i always loved Owen Hart. He had talent and guts. He was the Blue Blazer, and we all know we secretly loved him for covering Debra. But it was a total shock to find that Owen died because of a faulty rigging. But the memories out do the bad things. Long Live Owen Hart.

  The first time I saw Owen Hart was when he teamed with Koko B. Ware. I think they were called High Energy but I can't remember. Since then I have been a loyal fan of Owen Hart and his brother Bret. When everybody was against him, I stood by him. I liked his attitude to life. He always seemed upbeat. I always wanted to see him as world champion one day, but, unfortunately that won't happen. I would like to send my condolences to Owen's family and friends. I would like to end this by saying Good-bye Owen! We'll miss you!
  Ryan Sequeira
  I am totally speechless about the death of Owen Hart. I really hoped it was an angle. Just like Rick Rude, Rick Wilson, Louie Munncioni(sp?), Brian Pillman, Art Barr, and countless others, his end came far too soon. My condolences go out to the Hart family and all of Owen's friends.
  The first time I recall seeing Owen Hart was in his ever so brief WCW stint. I don't remember much about the match, except that Owen had did a flip over the ropes(like the one Too Cold Scorpio did/does) on his entrance. I didn't hear much about him until he came back to the WWF as the Rocket. His high flying made me an instant fan(I have always loved the high flyers). Even when he was feuding with his brother Bret, probably one of my favorite wrestlers of all time, I was always a fan of Owen. Him and Davey Boy is probably one of my favorite tag teams of all time. We'll miss ya, "Black Hart".
 Mike Waldrop
  My family and I grew up watching the Harts...I cann't believe he is gone from us, he was a wonderful wrestler and a great person. He cared about his fans you could always tell that, he also gave everything his all. He was greatly loved, and will be greatly missed by all. We love you OWEN!!!!

  I just came home to watch the repeat of the Over The Edge PPV. Before watching the show, I thought I would check the 'Net to get results for Sunday Night Heat. To my shock I see Owen Hart 1965-1999.
  Owen Hart has been a personal favorite wrestler of mine ever since he started in Stampede wrestling. I read about his abilities in wrestling magazines and was eager with anticipation to see him make it to the WWF. Many complained about the Blue Blazer gimmick that he first started out with. I was such a mark for this guy that I didn't care. Any opportunity to showcase his abilities was alright by me. And "showcase" was the word. From the technical skills, to the high-flying moves. Owen was and still is a GREAT performer up until this day. My personal favorite Owen Hart moment was when he tagged with Pillman, Bret, Anvil & Bulldog at the Calgary WWF PPV 2 yrs back. To hear the crowd go CRAZY when Owen Hart was introduced was hilarious. Even throughout the match, the crowd was chanting his name up until he won the match for his team with the pinfall. My brother and best friend are also Owen Hart fans and it was a truly exciting moment to see Owen receiving such a great response from his hometown.
  Even though I never met the guy, I can see that Owen Hart was a class act in and out of the ring. I have read nothing but positive things about Owen. I am saddenned by this recent horrible accident. I will miss seeing his performances as he was always entertaining to watch. Tragic loss is all I can say. The wrestling world has lost a CLASS act. I truly hope the WWF will pay an appropriate tribute to this great man and not make a circus fiasco out of this tragedy as they did with Brian Pillman. My condolensces to the entire Hart family.

  I am not a big owen hart fan but when they said on over the edge that he had died i was so sad I almost cried.
 Krusen13@aol.com
  I really wish to extend my sympathy to Owen's family and his fans. He was a good wrestler and never really got the respect or recognition he deserved. Jas N Smith
  From: Hitman7794@aol.com To: slamwrestling@canoe.ca My best memory of Owen Hart was when he beat Bret . That made him feel good knowing he had what it took to be like Bret
  In light of the terrible tragedy that occured at "Over the Edge", I would like pay my respects to a wonderful wrestler and man; Owen Hart. A consumate professional in every way, and a loving family man. Your defining moment might have been the superb match against your brother, Bret, at WM X. I know it captured my imagination. You will be missed by all wrestling fans, Owen. Whereever you may be, we will always love you...... Owen Hart (1965-1999) Rest in Peace Rune Eresberg, Norway.
  I just wanted to be one of the first to send my condolences to the Hart family about the death of Owen Hart. Owen was one of the true great technical wreslters of our time and he will be truly missed. I saw him wrestle live a few times, but the one that sticks in my head was in Boston. Him and the Anvil took on Bret and the Bulldog. It was a great match, with him trading holds with Bret and Davey all night. Although he lost, i gained a newfound respect for him that night. He will truly be missed. Tim Glancy
  Owen Hart vs. Bad News Allen (Brown), circa 1988, Kamloops, B.C. the date may be a little off, but I will always remember Owen for the drive and determination that he exuded. This match was only my second time seeing Owen wrestle live, and it was the main event at Kamloops Senior Secondary. At any rate, Owen and Bad News went at it for well over 30 minutes, exchanging moves and counter-moves, fighting inside and outside of the ring, and even into the fans. Owen was dog tired afterwards but came back out and signed autographs for a 1/2 hour. We just lost one of the good ones, God bless Hart Family, K. Andrew McLean
  it so sad to see a man who was a true professional in this sport..lose his life.. the true "hitman" in the sport. almost ending the career of steve austin.. in public one of the most approachable person there is.. he will be missed.. marc1996
  I remember when Owen and Brian Pillman were coming up in the stampede wrestling promotion it is such a shame that both are now gone I send out prayers to the Hart family and all of Owens fans. ponch38@prodigy.net
  I started following the WWF in December of 1997, and the first thing I figured out was that I really, really hated Degeneration X. I sadly wondered what kind of warped individual would actually cheer on filth like HBK and HHH. Then, all of a sudden, this guy from the audience leaps into the ring and starts beating the living hell out of Shawn Michaels. That night, a huge smile was put on my face and I knew right then who my favoirte wrestler was. Sadly, cheaters prosper in the WWF, and Owen was given a heel turn because his rivalry with DX "was going nowhere" (some people actually belive that despite the fact that Owen always got a huge pop until his "face" phase came to an end). Even as a heel, I had a special fondness for Owen, and often found myself angry at the WWF for constantly putting him on the losing end of crappy angles...not the least of which was a return to the Blue Blazer persona, although I thought it was hilarious when he and Jeff Jarret would get unmasked and then make feeble attempts to cover it up...the sight of Owen, in the Blazer costume minus the mask, with Jarret's T-shirt draped loosely over his head was priceless. The following week, their roles were reversed, and Owen yelled: "Who is that masked man?!?" Funny stuff...far funnier than those overblown DX impersonation skits. DX still sucks...what's left of it, anyway. -Eric Clark
  When I was younger I raved about a wrestler named "the blue blazer" who I watched on Saturday afternoons on Superstars. He was gone after a while and I never knew it was Owen until I actually read up on him online. I was really excited to see him wrestle as the blazer again, and since I heard he was going to win the title tonight I had my VCR ready to tape the match. I couldn't believe what happened, Owen will be missed by the wrestling community and all his fans, esp. us in Canada. In Owens memory I hope everyone says their prayers, takes their vitamins, and drinks their milk!!! WHOOOOO!!!!! Stef P.
  Owen hart was one of the greatest and under rated wrestlers in the WWF. He was a guy who could always garner a crowd response of some sort and made all of his opponents look good in the ring. He is deserving of a spot in the WWF hall of fame and at only 34 years of age, his death is an absolutely shocking tragedy. Words cannot express Owen Hart and his dedication to the world of professional wrestling. He will be missed by all. naren@attcanada.net
  I cried when I heard the news, after the initial shock. I was waiting for over a year for Owen to get a good angle going on, and finally this really funny superhero blazer angle was catching along and this had to happen. What's sad is he never got to be world champion.....something I believed was inevitable. Rest in peace buddy.... http://harts.arecool.net Kevin Vojdani
  my first memory of owen was his feud with his brother. although he wasn't always a fan favorite, he was always a professional both in and out of the ring tribefan1515@go.com
  My favorite memory of him is seeing him wrestle all the time, he was the only I cared watching in the WWF after Bret left. He was one of my most favorite persons in the world even though I never got a chance to meet him. I love watching him do that spinning heel kick, I always thought that was so cool. He was a very, very, great wrestler one of the best in the world, and I will miss him very much. kathy oglesby kath70@network-one.com
  I still remember that match with Bret and Owen, with Owen Winning.. I remember throwing stuff at the screen, and doing typical stuff when you don't like the outcome of a movie... I also remember the parody of the Nation of Domination that the Degeneration-X crew did, wth a wrestler/comedian by the name of Jason Sensation doing the imitation of Owen, I found that Funny.... also it goes to show you that Owen's talent and act sould not be copied by any other WWF superstar... Tho personally I never liked Owen's ring persona, I'm sure he was a great person outside of the ring, and my heart goes out to his family, His wife and kids... his parents, brothers and sisters... And I'm left with a couple of final thoughts on his death. Tho I'm not much into religion, there must have been a higher purpose for Owen... one that we may never see... and I also see it that Owen died doing what he loved best. That is entertaining the crowd.
  With everything that has transpired, I am saddened. Owen is just like his brother Bret. He is a good moral person. My favorite memory of him was when he fought Steve Blackman in Canada and the Canadian Stampede In Your House. The match wasn't a masterpiece, but the crowd gave him just what he deserved. It makes me tear up to think about what some fans and the WWF treated Owen. He was do talented and great. People should have been chanting his name instead of the others. My family and I love you and will miss you greatly. God Bless You Heath
  Owen Hart was my 8 year old son's favorite wrestler. We went to a car show here in K.C. and stood in line over an hour just so he could get to see him up close and get his autograph. Mr. Hart is the first person that my son has truly cared about and admired to pass away. As a parent it breaks my heart to see my son cry. However I too think of Mr. Harts children and what a horrific loss they have. I am however happy that my son has a real picture of him and Owen together and a framed autographed picture as reminders of a truly great man that he adored. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Hart Family and the world has truly lost a great man and wrestler.
  Class, respect and a true Canadian ... what a waste. Rmacrae
  Owen was a fine competitor. I can remember him at Wrestlemania V when he fought Mr. Perfect, when he took off the Blue Blazer mask and teamed with Koko B. Ware and Jim Neidhart, and when he impressed us all with his high flying action moves. Even when he turned on Bret at the Royal Rumble vs the Quebecers, I always admired his athletic ability. He finally came out of his brother's shadow when he beat him at the following Wrestlemania. He had some bad things happen such as inadvertantly injuring Stone Cold Steve Austin and Dan "The Beast" Severn, but even when these occurred, he handled himself like a professional. Recently, he has not been used very well, but i have always respected him for his ability. Unfortunately, we will never get to see Owen Hart hold the WWF title. But, we can look back at all of the great things he did for the sport. He will always have a place in my mind as a great performer, and a great man.
  Owen hart always amaze me by his moves, he was an awesome wrestler, I like to watch his moves that he has, it was a shame that he died so instantly-he will be very missed by everyone who likes the game of wrestling. I give my sympathy to all the hart family OWEN IS THE BEST THERE IS, THE BEST THERE WAS AND THE BEST THERE EVER WILL BE
  Owen was one of the greatest technical wrestlers to ever grace a wrestling ring. I remember when he was in Stampede and also when he first entered the WWF as Blue Blazer. He had one hell of a match against Curt Hennig at Wrestlemania 5. Who can forget the mat classic against Bret at Wrestlemania 10? I was at the April Skydome house show and my friends and I even started an OWEN chant. I still have a very old WWF Magazine in which Owen was first featured (as Blue Blazer). I have always admired Owen Hart and I have always thought that the WWF should have given more praise and respect. He is a true champ in all our hearts. He will be forever missed, along with other true legends like Andre the Giant, Rick Rude, JYD, Adrian Adonis, Kerry von Erich, Big John Studd, Brian Pillman, and Dino Bravo. I hope the WWF and WCW can learn from this senseless tragedy like Greg Oliver said. Frank Belluardo YWFA
  I'm very shocked and saddened by the death of who I believe was one of the best pure, exciting wrestlers of all time, Owen Hart. I do not know exactly what happened but regardless we lost one of today's best wrestlers. I send my condolences to the Hart family and to all wrestling fans for this tremendous loss. I saw Owen perofrm on many occassions both with Stampeded wrestling and the WWF and he was great. I'll miss you Owen, thanks for the memories.
  I want to take a minute to reflect what Owen meant to me. I never really liked his persona that he was given in WWF, but what I do remember is his strong work ethic. He gave of himself, and didn't mind being the heel to get over with the crowd. What happened to him is a tragedy, but there are inherent risks associated with doing stunts, in anything. Wrestling is not excluded. Tonight, unfortunantly, we all learned that. Owen will be greatly missed by all that love Professional Wrestling. I can only hope that his wife, children and the rest of his family know that we all love them, and him, and that the show will always lack just a bit of luster without him there. To Bret I would say," Man I know what it is like to lose a brother, Man, if anyone knows your pain, it is me. I only hope that you know that he will be missed by all of us." God be with you all, to ease your pain at this most tragic time. With heartfelt sadness, I am James Westmoreland GaMedic842@aol.com
  Today marks the death of a real wrestler. Owen Hart deserved better than what the WWF did for him. They did not look out for his well-being, and they have gone too far in the name of "sports entertainment". After watching Owen since I was a boy, I am deeply saddened by this tragedy. God be with his family...
  Bret, I want to send my condolence on the loss of your brother owen he will be rememberd by all wrestling fans around the world as a great guy. My sympathy is with the Hart family as well. Sincerely, Robert Staker
  I remember , I saw owen hart at the LOS ANGELES SPORT's arena in tagteam action men he really took the crowd by his wing with his wrestling skills. even in a tagteam match everyone in the arena knew he was the best wrestler in the match. he was truly something too be hold. peace MR HART thank's for the great times you gave the wrestling WORLD .
  I am truly saddened at the sudden death of Owen, a fine sportsman....i grew up watching stampede wrestling on Saturday afternoons in Edmonotn....but that WAS wrestling... Bret....I hope you come back to the wwf after this tragic loss...but i know you will be the champ of all time and will show why...screw Nash's 1/4 mil...!! my heart to you...TJ.
  I still remember back in the day of Stampede Wrestling, when I was kid, and watching Owen Hart. I still remember when he first entered the WWF as the Blue Blazer, and I told all my friends, "that guy wrestles like Owen." What do you know, I was right. When I got news that Owen had died, it send shivers through me. Owen has a lot of class, and is great with the fans. I have met most of the Harts, and he's got to be the most genuine with the fans. It just hits so close to home when I heard about this. I didn't actually see the PPV, but when I was informed, I thought it must have been an angle. Then I was told by more and more people, only made me believe something actually happened. My most memorable thing with Owen is, Summerslam and his match with Steve Austin. It shows that even though he hurt Steve Austin, he still jobbed to him. That's a lot of class, because we all know he could have kicked out of that cheesy roll up. Thanks for the memories Owen, you will be missed, and may you rest in peace. mimic@home.com Johnny Tran

  Just wanted to send my condelences to the hart family and say that i couldn't beleive that Mcman actually let the show go on. I thought that was an absolute disgrace to the family, but then again what would you expect from him.

Poem for Owen
by Christopher Kellerman

You made me smile
When I was blue
Your funny quotes, 
Your energetic  "WOO!!!"
"Good Guy" or "Bad Guy", 
You were still cool
Anyone that denied your greatness,
Was truly a fool
We know that you were different
From your Bad Guy acts
And we felt so many emotions
When JR gave the facts
We'll miss you Owen
You've given us so much
We'll remember you forever
For our heart, you've truly touched.

Rest In Peace
Owen Hart

Sincerely,
Christopher Kellerman
Arlington, Texas

  hello, i am japanese wwf fan. i'm very sad that what happened. owen was known as good westler in japan. thank you. and good bye. showichi kohsaka
  i will miss seeing him on the tv. he always made me laugh. i liked when he fought brett and made him angry. we all have lost a great wrestler
  My favorite memories of Owen Hart was the crowd at Skydome for the Press Conference on July. 31st 1998 in Toronto, Ontario. As well as his win over Bret Hart at "WrestleMania 10".
  A hero is dead. The lost of owen is a bad thing for wwf wrestling. Owen was the best and i am sorry that he never got the WWF titel. The best mahct i haf seen Owen wrestle was aginst Bret at Wrestelmania X. Owen will be missed. A Farwell from denmark
  My favourite memory of owen was when on Oct. 5 1997, when he won the I-C title the same day that his good friend Brian Pillman passed away, he was shocked, and visibly upset, but he maintained his composure and he defeated Faarooq in the I-C tournament final, but afterwards dedicated his title victory to Brain. He's a excellent person with a big heart. Pat LeBlanc, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
  I loved Owen since the first time I'd seen him. He was such a wonderful wrestler, and I loved hi very much. He was one of my first big crushes outside the ring, and inside he was phenominal. I took his death very hard, crying with feelings of mixed denial. It was a senseless tragedy that happened to a wonderful man. My heart goes out to his children, his wife, and the entire Hart family. I have so many memories, as does the rest of his fans and family that I know he will never be forgotten. I love you Owen...You're in the "Heaven for The 'Boys' " now..Take care with Brian, Rick, Dino, Adrian, Andre, and all the rest that the wrestling world has lost. Take care of Matt since I know he's missed You..I miss You. May Your memory and legacy live on forever. Love, Rachel
  Owen was nothing like he was in the ring. He was vere nice I met him in Montreal when they played softball for charity .Even though the crowd of people were pushing me out of line, he made sure that I got his autograph. He had a very friendly way with the people there . It was a sunny day and even Chyna was laughing and having fun . They were having their picture taken with somebodys baby, and you wouldn't believe how funny Owen was being for such a tough guy! Paul/Montreal
  We're gonna miss you owen..thanks for the memories. D. Donahue, Pennsylvania.
  My favorite memory is during the peak of the big Hart Foundation- Bret, Owen, Bulldog, Anvil and Pillman. At that point of time they were the best stable in wrestling and they proved it by holding all of the WWF's titles. RIP Owen. You were a great wrestler and you will be missed. TheLizard_king@hotmail.com
  BRET HAS ALWAYS BEEN MY FAVORITE WRESTLER. I HAVE BEEN WATCHING HIM ALMOST 15 YRS I THINK. I WATCHED HIS SPECIAL ON A&E AND IT MADE ME LOVE HIM MORE. FELT AS THOUGH I KNEW HIM AND HIS FAMILY ON A PERSONAL LEVEL. I AM VERY SADEN BY THE DEATH OF OWEN HART, HE TO IS A TREMENDOUS WRESTLER. I WILL MISS HIM EMENSILY. MY PRAYERS GO OUT TO THE ENTIRE HART FAMILY. I AM VERY UPSET THOUGH THAT THE WWF CONTINUED WITH THEIR *SHOW* AFTER OWEN WAS HURT. I FEEL THAT THERE SHOULD HAVE BEEN MORE CONCERN SHOWN BUT GUESS THATS WHAT WWF IS ALL ABOUT HUH. I HAVE FOLLOWED BRET FROM WWF TO WCW. I LOVE YOU BRET YOU ARE THE BEST THERE IS THE BEST THERE WAS AND BEST THERE EVER WILL BE!!!!!!! LOTS OF LOVE AND PRAYERS FOR YOU ANS YOUR FAMILY. TANYA RICHARD @ TANYA BLANCO
  I knew he always was a great wrestler, even in the shadows of his elder brother HitMan. The two things I will remember: the feud with Bret and when he stood with the latter and the rest of the Hart Foundation, raising the Canadian flag over the American audience, proving how great Canadian champs are ! Rest in peace...SALUT OWEN ! Claude Leduc ceejayl@hotmail.com
  We love you Owen and will always remember you.....You were and willl ever be the best wrestler around... (Stephanie_69_69_69@yahoo.com)
  Hart's death was devestating. He was a sports legend. I wish his family the best. The fans called him NUGGET and he kind of enjoyed it. Everyone Will miss Owen. My favourite match was the Hell in the Cell match against Shamrock. Hart was a legend and he left us the hard way.
  The death of Owen Hart. When I learned of this news sunday night, all I could think of is that in his time in the WWF, it seemed to me that Owen had never been given the opportunity to take that next step and become more than the "Blue Blazer", or "Nugget" or "The King of Hart's". Owen Hart was a real wrestler, not one of those sports entertainers. It seems strange to me that in death, it is now Owen's time to shine at his brightest, and receive the accolades that he so richly deserved in life. Regardless of how he gets them, he truly deserves them. Owen Hart: Calgarian, Albertan, Canadian, Wrestler, Champion!
  well I remember watching Owen in Calgary stampede he was really good and I think the wrestling world lost a real good man and excellent wrestler last night. my heart goes out to the hart family.Owen was truly an asset to wrestling and will sadly be missed but always remembered
  I still cannot quite believe that what I saw happen last night at Over the Edge was real. I don't think it has really sunk in yet. My favorite memory of Owen Hart is of when he came to Birmingham, England, my hometown. He fought Vader and that match had to be the best match on the card. I had a ringside seat and the person I was sitting next you had managed to get a backstage pass. This guy was telling me the wrestlers he had just met backstage and he told me that out of all them, Owen Hart was really nice. He said that he came across really shy, but he was really kind. I never thought about what he said until last night, that was when I rememebered back to "One Night Only" here in England. Owen Hart was one of the greatest wrestlers to ever step between the ropes, I will deeply Owen, but never forget him. Indi Shambi, England
  i am greatly saddened by the news of Owen Harts passing, and would like to pass on my deepest sympathies to the hart family, and as with all other fans out there , our prayers will be with the hart family. sincerely D. Gully Edmonton, AB
  my memories of owen was the first time I got his autograph I was so happy he asked my name owen hart was very nice im very sad
  I have been watching wrestling for many of the last 15 years. After last nights tragic death of Owen Hart I began surfing and found your site about the Hart Family Legacy. I just want to say thank you for your indepth family history. You show the family with such respect. My deepest sympathies are with the Hart family in this tragic time. I personally will remember the contributions that Owen has made to the sport and will miss seeing him on the WWF very much! Thank you. Elizabeth McIntosh
  just read about Owen Hart dying at the Over the Edge ppv, and I'm shocked. Words cannot express what I feel right now, but I can tell you i'm devestated by this news as Owen was one of my all-time favourite wrestlers. Owen will always be rembered by me as one of the best wrestlers I ever saw. It's not fair that a guy in the prime of his life is taken away from us by such a tragic accident. I want to express my condolences and my feelings go out to the entire Hart family. Owen Hart was the True King of Harts. R.I.P. Owen. A very sadened dutch fan, Merijn van Stiphout
  i remember watching the fabulous moolah wrestle a girl named donna cristintello at my high school in bayou la batre al in 1965-1970-somewhere in that area i know moolah won that was the first time i saw her wrestle my name is homer my em,ail address is shoeboot@worldnet.att.net
  I've been a WWF fan since Mr.t and Hulk Hogan. I really do not know what to think of this situation. I'm very sad and feel very badly for the whole Hart family. I wish that Vince would bring back the Wrestling that we once known. Bringing the Entertainment of Sex and woman is exciting, but it was not how it used to be. I think that takes a great efect on the Hart family. I know why Bret left now. Strictly Entertainment Vince says. I don't think he knew what he once had. My thoughts and prayers go out to the whole Hart family.
  Even though I never met Owen Hart in person, I felt like I knew the man. Ever since I started watching wrestling back in 1985, I have always one member of the Hart family everyweek wrestle on television. I remember when Owen was named Rookie of the Year in 1987. I had never heard of him, but after that I always heard of him. It is a sad day for wrestling fans all over the world. My prayers go out to the Hart Family. Jeremy Kahn (Northridge, California)
  I may only be 19 and from Australia. But wrestling is my life. I watch about 10 hours of it a week on cable television. I may not know allot about the tradition of the Hart family, but when I woke up today and went to WebPages and read "Owen Hart" dies after falling 40 feet into the ring, it shocked me. I promised myself I would never cry over wrestling, but this brought tears to my eyes. The world has lost a great wrestler & the hart family has lost a terrific, Brother, Son, Father & Husband. Owen we know that right now your up there looking down at us, and on behalf of everyone who has ever been in contact with u, via watching you on television, watching you live at a arena, or shared your magnificent lift with you, I want to personally say that you were loved by millions, you are loved by millions & you will be loved by millions for ever. I ask that everyone who believes in that I am talking about, stops what they are doing, and spends a moment in silence & says a prayer for the hart family. Owen we will miss you, you are loved by millions. R.I.P Owen Hart. May-7-1965 - May 23 - 1999 We love you Owen. Signed - Matthew Caligari
  Owen was a great athlete. Seeing him and Jeff Jarret defend the WWF tag team titles was awesome. You could always count on Owen to put on a great show. Owen will be greatly missed, and I must say that the WWF just isnt gonna be the same without the King Of Harts.
  I just wanted to send my best wishes and my sincerest condolences to the whole Hart family. For several years tuning in each week to watch such an agile performer such as Owen has always been a nice way to pass the time... My heart goes out to his wife, children and all of the Hart family... As I was sitting home to watch Over the Edge on PPV I was appaled that the event continued after the fact.. Bret my heart goes out to you, I know you have been through much in your life as a pro wrestler... God Bless and be well A Heart Foundation Fan
  sorry to hear the death of owen hart he was one of the best one of your fans karen sullivan andover mass
  I think that, in my view he was a very athletic wrestler and the good matches were with his brother Bret Hart. When ever I saw him wrestle against anybody I always saw the determination in his eyes to keep trying.
  I would like to send my sympathy to the Hart family,such a powerful and respected Canadian family,Wrestling is in their blood.It is truly a very sad day,Owen was a very talented wrestler and we will miss him. skaha99@yahoo.com
  There are numerous Memories that I'll always have of Owen Hart, Beating his brother Bret at Wrestlemania X, King of the ring '94, putting shawn Micheals, steve austin + dan severn on the injury lists, beating Ken Shamrock and The Rock and all the titles he won, It's a damn shame that the Macmahon family never gave him a serious shot at the World Title in his later years despite having beaten the so called "superstars", he would have made a great Champion. My Heart goes out to the Entire Hart family. His death was very tragic and he'll be missed in the UK where he has a large following. We'll always remember you lovingly. Taz, UK.
  Owen will be missed...my thouhgts and prayers are with his family, friends, and wrestlers. Thank you Owen for all the memories you have left us.
  To all the Heart family and Owen's fan's at this time of sorrow,no one who is remembered is ever truly gone... Owen will live on in the hearts of many who will never forget . Deepest Sympathy Owen Fan
  Well, I would just like to send my condolances to the Hart Family. Your family has a long history of Wrestling, and I have enjoyed watching your entire family wrestle. I was watching the WWF last night when the accident happened. I believe personally that they should have stopped the show at that point, and I don't know what they were thinking by letting it go on. I still believe that the matches between Bret and Owen were some of the most entertaining matches which I have ever seen. I hope that the family will be able to stay strong through this event, and again, I would just like to send my condolances. Shane Paris
  Owen Hart was the most under-rated wrestler of all time. The greatest moment of his stunning career was when he dropped Stone Cold Steve Austin on his shiny bald head .Owen should have died the WWF champion like he deserved. Owen's greatest victory was over Rocky Maivia for the I-C gold .I love you Owen. Rest in Peace. Matthew Hogan
  THE BEST!! thats all that can be said. I've known the Hart family since i was little. My brothers and sisters went to school with the Harts, and i worked with Martha: Owens wife. In the mid Eighties I was to join stampede wrestling and be part of this type of family,and be close to stars like Owen. My thoughts go out to the families on each side. Owen was a fantastic gentalmen and husband and father.The wrestling sport is going to be quite empty and boring without THE KING Owen Hart! My candel burns for Owen stewartcharles@hotmail.com
 
  There is not much to say, and I've never seen Owen live or anything, but I was a big-time fan during the "Rocket-times" of Owen, and he was my idol. When we wrestled in the backyard or on the couch with friends or my uncle, I was always Owen Hart and put everybody in the sharpshooter to finish them up. Now this is all over, I guess everybody heard the horrifying news...Owen Hart is died last night. All I want to say is, that my prayers and my entire thoughts are with the Hart-family right now... OWEN - YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN... $ebastian Miethe, sebi8@hotmail.com
  our harts go out to the family and friends of Owen Hart From everyone in St. louis wrestling fans.
  Wrestling has lost one of my favorite wrestlers due to the tragedy of last nights Pay for View. We were watching the event at our favorite pub and could not believe the announcers when they said Owen Hart fell 18 metres. Our first reaction was that it was another of the stunts are often pulled by the WWF. We could not believe the announcement until Jerry the King Lawler stepped out of character, and with a somber tone said that "this is not part of the show, this is for entertainment and fun" we knew something was terribly wrong. The second announcement, when they said Owen Hart has died we could not watch the conclusion of the event. Like most fans we are in shock that something this serious could happen. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Owen's wife, children and the entire Hart family. Jim and Eldeen Bruce
  Although Owen Hart wasn't the most popular WWF superstar, he was one of my favorites. I always loved how the crowd would taunt him by shouting, "Nugget! Nugget!" I think he secretly liked it because he was being recognized, and every wrestler likes having that chant. My favorite memory of him is bittersweet. It was after he pile drived Dan Severn and injured his spine. The next RAW, he went into the ring and said how sorry he was, and that as he was looking at Severn, he thought about his wife and kids, and was retiring. He got all teary-eyed, and I got teary-eyed along with him. It takes a real man to do that on live televsion and in front of a crowd. I will miss chanting, "Nugget! Nugget1"
  My family and I have followed wrestling for many years and the accident last night has brought the reality of live to all of us. We watch and admire the ability of the wrestlers, but dont always appreciate what they have given us. From the absence to their family, the struggles they go thru to make it to the top of their chosen profession, to the pure athletic ability that each and every wrestler brings to the table. I can only offer the prayers and thoughts to the Hart family for their loss. To each one, I can say that the memories of Owen and the professionalism he has displayed will never be forgotten. He has brought much happiness to many thru out the world, always remember that,, a man is meausured not by what he does in life, but what he gives his family, and what he gives the kids.. and Owen was one of the best at giving for the kids.... they will always remember him for that Having lost 2 brothers before their time, I can relate a little... Your family will be in our prayers and thoughts... Frank O'Neill
  My favorite memory of Owen was when he was feuding with the British Bulldog on Raw one night. In the middle of the match, Bret Hart came down and broke up the match. He pointed out that they were all family, and that everyone was trying to divide them. Owen and Davey Boy then left the ring with Bret. This started the reformation of the Hart Foundation, which was by far, the best collection of individuals in all of wresting history. I have been watching Owen since 1990, and he was the sole reason I continued to watch the WWF. I will miss him greatly. I send his family and friends my deepest regrets. Kevin Marchese Columbus, Ohio
  I have some great memories of the Hart Family, my son Brennen wanted so badly to call and wish Stu a happy birthday a couple of years ago, so being a brave soul myself I decided that my son should do so, I called information and they gave me the phone number and address of the Hart family home. I called scared to death, I don't know why I guess it was because I thought they would be just as tough on the phone as they were in the ring, but to my surprise one to the brothers answered the phone and he was so nice I was so happy to pass the phone over to Brennen so he could talk to Stu, the guy who answered I believe to this very day was the last great Owen himself. Stu talked to Brennen for at least 20 minutes telling him stories and just being a great guy all around. I just want to say thanks Hart family for being a down to earth bunch and not letting the stars get into your eyes. Tracey
  What really sticks out in my memory about Owen is these last few months. That Blue Blazer gimmick was really starting to get over with the fans. He would have been a bigger heel than when he turned on Bret back in 94. Owen is a role model and a hero to all of us wrestling fans. We all have a little bit of Owen Hart in us.
  i did not get to met nor see owen but, i like everyone i to liked him... my own opion he was a very good person.... also a great wrestler... he'll never be forgotten... sad sad tradgy.....for all of the hart family my prayers are with you.. be strong. for i will miss owen very much.. as a big fan farwell owen we all love you... hope pottinger
  When I got up this morning on Monday May 24th, I turned on my tv and turned it to the Today show like had done every morning. As I flipped it on they were showing pictures from a wrestling event and talking about a wreslter falling to his death. It wasn't until they showed Owen's pic that I realized he was the one they were talking about. I went into shock. My jaw fell to the fall and I just stood there for a minute with my mouth on the ground. Then I burst into tears. I admit that for a long time Ididn't like him all that much. But whenyou grow up watching someone, no matter how you feel about them, when they die, or get hurt, You are upset and worried. We have lost 2 great wrestlers in the past month and ahalf (Rick Rude and now Owen) and they will live on in our hearts foever. My prayers are with his family, especialy his wife and kids. Thank you for enteraining us for so long Owen. Kylie Miller Kyliedas@yahoo.com
  Taken too early... R.I.P. Owen Hart
  Me and my mother who were great fans of Owen Hart are deeply sorry for what has happened. Owen Hart was "King of the Harts". He was a great wrestler who took many risk. We can only hope that he died doing what he really wanted to and that the fans will always remember. Nathan Miers larkrn@aloha.net
  As a person who has watched the athletic displays known as professional wrestling matches for the past 21 years, there are a few athletes whose matches stand out in my mind. These include Randy Savage and Owen Hart. When it comes to these two I cannot remember a single bad match in which they've been a part of. But let's talk about Owen. Obviously, the accolades will begin to pour in about this man's accomplishments in life (i.e. his in-ring performances) but I would rather focus on something he went through just a year and half ago...the greatest match of life. Except this one took place outside of the ring. It was the well-known, infamous "Survivor Series" incident in Montreal. It took place between his brother, Bret, and his boss, Vince McMahon. I won't explain anymore because 99.9% of wrestling fans know about this. I will say Owen could have followed his family and left the Whiff for Atlanta but instead he stayed. Yeah, he held the Euro title and the tag titles for a couple of title reigns. And, from what I understand, he was supposed to have a major push coming up this year. But his staying behind to work "up north" proved that he had the guts and professionalism to not let family business that didn't involve him directly influence him to follow his blood to other pastures. He might not have been part of a major storyline in the past year-and-a -half and he might not have ever held the world title but every match that I saw him take part in (trust me, I watch the world sports entertainment almost religiously on a weekly basis) he gave his all...even though he was a mid-carder. That's very rare these days. He was one true professional. But above all he seemed like a great family man who put his wife and kids on the very top of his priority list. And if you ask me, that's the greatest personal trait of all... Dylan Bolander Bolanderd@hotmail.com
  i watched wrestling from the time i was very little , about 32 yrs ago, i remember the dad and i just want to say our hearts go out to them, brett loved his brother and this must be very difficult for the mom and dad, be strong, and know that you raised a great family, this is truly a tragedy, i hope there is an extensive investigation because whoever is in charge is responsible for making sure that all the equipment is beyond safe...gwen
  I will all ways remember him as my hero. I wish he could of had a respectful death.
  On May 23, 1999, Owen died in his Blue Blazer ring atire. He was repelling from the ceiling. His harness broke. He fell 50 feet, hit his head on the turnbuckle and died. The wwf had the dignity to keep the camera on the crowed. I myself was saddened when I herd of his death.
  I can remember when I first saw Owen wrestle, he was my favorite wrestler. Even thought I am only 11 years old I will always remember the Blue Blazer. I just wish I could still be able to watch him every chance I get. He may not be with us in person but he will always be with us in spirit. Megan Archer
  now many here have their one favourite memory.. and many come from more recent times.. but i must admit.. i dont have a one favourite memory.. in fact.. i was a closet Hart fan for many a year.. i was watching You in action way back in teh early wwf days.. the days when names like the bulldogs and hart foundation meant a good battle ahead.. and hulk was the undisputed king... back in those days.. even though,, i was a die hard hot rodder.. i couldn't help but watch the hart foundation.. totally entranced by your moves... even if that loudmouth jimmy made me cringe i saw your show on a and e.. and have seen your treatment in recent years and thought how sad the world of wrestling has become.. tossing heros aside.. especially ones of your calibre.. shows the total disregard for teh sport.. and all for the story makes me stay away hitman.. my condolences to you and your family at this time.. i have to say that my heart goes out to you all..
  owen, we will always be with you, prayers and thoughts
  My Favorite Memorie of owen is when dressed up as the blue blazer and attack the Godfather. dru63
  I liked Owen when he was finally on his own. His brother Bret always took the spot light way from him when he (owen) was in the ring . I am trully sorry for his death and will miss him deeply Owen was a true wrestler and others should look at him as a champ of the wrestling world because to me he is the Best there is .The best there was . and the best there ever will be. Own you really truely are the champion of the WWF in my eyes and always will be sadly missed to me. A fan of OWEN HART
  Unfortunately, today we mourn the loss of a wonderful wrestler, Owen Hart. I have always loved wrestling and have always known it was for entertainment. Most everyone knows the matches are rigged. But to lose a great athlete to these circumstances is horrifying. There are so many former wrestlers who have died due to drugs and family problems that caused them to take their own lives, but Owen loved his life and his family. It is so unbelievable that this happened. And yes accidents do happen. But what a horrible way to end what was a superb athlete. My heart felt condolences to the entire family. God Bless MLF-----Texas
  OWEN HART ONE OF THE BEST WWF WRESTLER THERE I'AM SORRY TO SEE HIM GO THE FIRST TIME I MET HIM IN PERSON THEN I WONED TO BE LIKE OWEN HART RIP OWEN HART I WILL MISS YOU
  I WAS SHOCKED WHEN I FIRST HEARD THE NEWS, I WISH THE HART FAMILY WELL, AND I'M SORRY TO HEAR WHAT HAPPENED TO THEIR YOUNGEST SON, AND MY HEART GOES OUT TO YOU. OWEN HART WAS AN EXELENT WRESTLER WHO WAS ALWAYS SHADDOWED BY HIS OLDER BROTHERS BUT HE ALSO AS GOOD, OR EVEN BETER THAN HIS FAMILY IN WRESTLING. IT'S A TRAGEDY TO HEAR NEWS LIKE THIS, MOST OF ALL WHEN IT HAPPENS IN FRONT OF CHILDREN AND FANS ALL OVER THE WORLD WHILE A LIVE EVENT IS HAPPENING , LIKE I SAID I 'M SO SORRY THIS HAPPENED, I WISH WE COULD TURN BACK TIME AND FIX THE MISTAKES WE OVERLOOKED, SO WE COULD MOVE ON AND VIEW THE ORIGINAL PLAN THAT WAS . I'M SAD IT HAPPENED SO END NEAR HIS CAREAR, I FEEL THE GREIF OF HIS WIFE AND CHILDREN AND OF COURSE HIS FAMILY , REST IN PEACE OWEN !!! YOU'LL ALWAYS BE WITH US IN MEMORY AND OF COURSE ALL OF OUR HEARTS, R.I.P. OWEN FROM A FAN OF COURSE!
  Last night, May 23rd, a place in my heart became empty. Although the love that I have for Owen Hart will always be there, it still will never be the same. I have many memories dedicated to Owen, ones that will never be lost. And some that will never come. Owen Hart May 7, 1965 - May 23, 1999 With all love and respect, Heather
  I am so sad to heard this terrible news about such a fine person as Owen Hart. I have been a wrestling fan for 24 years and have a lot of great memories of the Hart family. I remember Bret and Owen feuding at Wrestlemania 10 and when they was the Hart foundation. Our prayers are wth his family at this tragic time. Thanks for the memories Owen.
  I think that the fall that Owen had was horrible! I feel sorry for his two children that will now have to grow up with no dad and for his wife will have to go one knowing that her husband died becuz of wrestling. Although there were people who didnt like him that much, he will always be remembered in the WWF.
  I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER OWEN AS ONE OF THE GREATEST WRESTLERS OF ALL TIME. IT IS SO SAD TO SEE HIM DIE SO YOUNG. MAY OWEN''THE BLUE BLAZER'' HART REST IN PEACE.
  Good Bye Owen Hart. You are in heven now with god and will stay. I am so sorry that you died. You was one of THE BEST WRESTELER In the WWF. Your friend, Louis
  I remember seeing Owen Hart at a WWF event. It was SummerSlam when it was in Chicago. He was facing his brother , Bret Hart. It was a great match. I am glad I got to see him live 'cause he is a GREAT wrestler. He will be missed. I'm sure Owen Hart is in that big wrestling ring in the sky.
  LET ME SAY TO ALL THE FANS OF OWEN HART AND MOST OF ALL TO HIS FAMILY THAT OWEN HART WAS A GREAT WRESTLER AND A GREAT PERSON. I AM VERY UPSET AT THE DEATH OF HIM AND I DO HOPE THEY FIND OUT JUST WHAT HAPPENED. I WOULD LIKE TO SAY I DON'T THINK VINCE MCMANN IS RESPONSIBLE FOR HIS DEATH AND I KNOW HE IS VERY UPSET TO . I HOPE WE NEVER FORGET OWEN AND HOW GREAT HE WILL ALWAYS BE IN OUR HEARTS.
  Years ago, when I was a little girl I was a fan of the WWF and I always remember seeing Owen in the magazine with Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart. When I woke up this morning and heard the news that Owen had gone I couldnt believe it and I still can't.. Although I was never a big fan of Owen Hart, I liked him none the less, he was still always one of the people I liked. Over the years, as I grew up, I left the WWF behind. But I never forgot about any of them and I always wondered how everyone was and what they where doing. What happened today has saddened and shocked me because I dont quite believe it. As someone who grew up with the WWF, like someone who grew up watching Star Wars, its unbeliveable, and its bought me back to the WWF again. My thoughts and feelings are with his family and his children. Please feel free to E-Mail CATALINA at Persephone_Okiya@yahoo.co.uk
  It was May 23 1999 at "Over the Edge" were Owen was killed.He was supposed to make an entrance from the top of the Kansas arena as the Blue Blazer but the rope snapped and he fell to the ring,hitting the barbell with his head.He was pronounced dead like 15 minutes after he was rushed to the Kansas City Hospital.It is a sad time in the WWF,a very sad time.
  Owen Hart was not only a wrestler but he is a family man. I am sending my love and prayers to his family.Owen's memories will always be with us. Love Summer
  Owen Hart died trying to do the Blue Blazer entrance at Over The Edge 5/23/99
  To the Hart family from the Demel family in New York, we are sorry...may G-d give you the strenghth and courage through this tragedy. Adoni will take care of him, he will be in heaven. G-d bless. Greg, Esq. mmascrs@aol.com
  When I read the news last night at about ten o'clock central time, the only thought that kept going through my head over and over was "Oh my God, Oh my God". I thought it was a hoax, until I learned it was true... Owen was dead. I still can't help thinking that this can't be real, but I have to accept it. I admit I don't know as much about him as I do about Bret, but I respected his abilities inside the ring, and I've heard a lot about how good a person he was. I'd like to ask you guys at Slam! to do a favor for folks like me who don't know as much as we'd like to about Owen. I'd like you to try and set up something that'll tell us about Owen, not just in the ring, but in the world outside of wrestling. What did he like? Who were his friends? That sort of thing. And I beg you, don't ever forget him... he deserves to be remembered as a great wrestler, person, and a Hart. Goodbye, Owen... and thank you for all the memories.
  Owen Hart's death has stunned me tremendously. I had the privilege of meeting him on two occasions, and his grace, and good manner was of the highest class. I am only 16 years old, but I have grown up watching Owen Hart. I first saw him in 1989, as the Blue Blazer, and my fondness of him began. Over the years, Owen has touched all of our hearts through his performance in, and out of the ring. A loving, and devoted father, Owen Hart always looked out for his family, even to the very end. His entertaining gave us all sorts of emotions, happy, anger, vengeance, and laughter. Owen will always live on in my heart, as the greatest superstar to ever grace the ring. This isn't a bandwagon post, I have respected, and been a #1 fan of Owen all the way from 1989, to his WrestleMania 10 win, even to this day. I hope his memories can give us all something, from his villain persona, to the American superhero. Owen stood for what he believed in, and will truly be missed by myself, and the rest of the world. Good bye Owen, and thank you for your years.... An Owen Hart fan to the very end.. Rest in peace Rocket. Sean P.

  Owen was always one of my favorite wrestlers. I am not going to say I understand because I don't. First I don't have a awesome professional wrestler in the family and I haven't had a death in the family recently. I will say that I am sorry. I have to go now because I think I am going to cry. Bye and I love you!!
  I pretty much grew up watching Owen Hart wrestle. This is really a shock for me and probably everybody else in the world. I know that I will definitely miss him. Kyle
  Me and my friend Andy were at a WWF show in San Antonio, Texas. This was back towards the end of Bret Hart's run with the WWF. They were still doing the anti-USA gimmick. Apparently, since they were in the U.S., McMahon didn't want them to take the Canadian flag with them to the ring. My friend Andy took a Canadian flag with him and worked his way to the ramp. When Owen, Brett and the British Bulldog were walking to the ring, one of them grabbed the flag from Andy, and they carried it proudly to the ring. On the way back to the dressing room, Bulldog had the flag draped across his shoulders and passed Andy without giving the flag back to him. Not intentionally, but under the belief that they had brought the flag with them. Owen chased down Bulldog, got the flag from him, and made sure that Andy got back his flag. I know that it was one of Andy's greatest moments as a wrestling fan...and if anyone knows Andy, they know he's had an incredible amount of tremedous wrestling memories...but for me, that is what stood out the most. That is what tells me, that Owen Hart was one of the truly great men in wrestling. By that simple act, when he was supposedly a heel, he showed that he was responsible, considerate and grateful to his fans. Rest in Peace Owen Hart. Larry M. Gonzalez
  I never once met Owen Hart in person, yet night after night he gave himself over to me and countless other WWF fans. His ability and his attitude both in and out of the ring earned my respect, and I have been a fan of his for many years. I can't even begin to express how sorry I feel for his poor family, and how tragic this all is. I do not blame the WWF for continuing with the show-- what else could they have done? Would Owen have wanted to stop? Does it matter? This was a senseless accident, a fluke. However, it should serve as a wake-up call for fans and bookers everywhere. Maybe wrestlers should just be wrestling. And Owen Hart should always be remembered, as a performer, but first as a father, husband, son, brother, uncle, and friend. Fly with the angels now, Owen! We miss you! http://www.fortunecity.com/olympia/nicklaus/99/index2.html
  We in England who are fans of the WWF wish to send our heart felt condolences to Mr & Mrs Hart and all members of the Hart family and especially to Owens wife and children on hearing the tragic news of Owens death. He rated as one of the finest wrestlers and entertainers in the business, his untimely death will leave a gaping hole in the "Hall of Fame" all time great wrestlers. We hope that the Harts can draw some comfort from the fact that many thousands of Owens fans grieve with them. Owen Hart Rest in Peace
  I HAVE 3 WORDS THAT DESCRIBE OWEN HART, GREAT HUMAN BEING! MY SYMPATHY GOES OUT TO THE WHOLE HART FAMILY. JEFF LOVINS
 
  Plain and simple. The way in which Owen conducted himself both in the ring and out, he proved to me that he deserves the saying, "The best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be". We ALL miss u Owen, THANX 4 THE MEMORIES...R.I.P. Y Naeem
  Typing this through tears, I want to offer my sincerest condolences on the loss of Owen Hart. I never met the man, but after watching him wrestle in multiple organizations over nearly ten years, I almost feel as if I knew him well. Salman Rushdie recently said in an interview that we fans tend to project the personality traits of ourselves onto the celebrities we admire. In the case of Owen Hart, no projection is necessary, as evidenced by the outpouring of tributes from those who knew him. He was everything they say he was. In fact, we should all be so fortunate as to posess the character traits of this man. As a fan of Owen's, I cheered for him no matter what, whether he was heel or face. In the spirit of the entertainment form known as pro wrestling, I felt for him every time he walked away on the losing end of a match, not because he didn't "win" the pre-determined match-up, but because he wasn't allowed to win. I always felt that someday, his World title reign would come, if only for a short time. Lesser men were given that honour, and it will always bother me that his career and life ended without getting that one mainstream award that would show smarts and marks alike that he was indeed a champion. We'll all know, Owen, that you were a champion. You'll be in our thoughts and prayers always. I'm sure that from up above, he must be touched knowing the effect he had on all our lives. Thanks for the memories, Owen. Robert O'Keefe Edmonton, Alberta
  I must say that i have been very lucky to see him wrestle in canada in copps colisum, MSG and the skydome. he was a great wrestler i am truly going to miss him phillip aged 15
  Owen Hart to me was one of the best wrestlers the wwf has ever had. I would like to take this time to give my condolences and prayers to Stew, Helen, Bret and the rest of there family. When I heard about this i was so shocked that i actually cried. I have an autograph pic of him hanging on my wall, I know now ill never take it off. Sincerley, Joshua Sandstrom sandstrom80@yahoo.com
