Cherished friend showed us how to live and loveMore than a few times before he died in October 2006 at age 94, I heard Buck Oâ€™Neil talk about hate.
The chairman of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum said: â€œI never learned how to hate. I hate cancer.â€
Oâ€™Neilâ€™s words flooded back last week at the memorial service for my friend Julie Hise. She was diagnosed with cancer in April and died June 28.
