Beloved Brother!

My heart is full from all your loving thoughts for my Loving Husband, me and our family, for the loss of our Beloved Brother!

Subject: Statement by the President on the Death of Abe Pollin THE WHITE HOUSE Office of the Press
Secretary _________________________________________________________________________ ____ For Immediate Release November 25, 2009 President Barack Obama Statement on the Death of Abe Pollin

Michelle and I were deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Abe Pollin – a giant in the world of professional sports and someone I was proud to call a friend. Abe was a man who knew that being an owner wasn’t just about winning championships, although his teams had plenty of success. It was about helping young athletes become good people as well as good players. And it was about being part of a community. Abe believed in Washington, D.C. when many others didn’t – putting his own fortune on the line to help revitalize the city he loved. He was committed to the teams he guided, generous to those who needed it most, and as loyal to the people of D.C. as they were to him. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Irene, his sons Robert and James, and the entire Pollin family.

A man loved... not only by his family, but his community for all his tremendous good deeds. The whole world has benefited because of his unselfish giving of his time and money to so many world causes!
Because he has left this world...we are all missing one of our brightest stars. Because he has left this world...we all sense somehow, that a man who dreamed the impossible dream and gave to the world in so many ways, has left a path for us to follow in his footsteps in what ever way we can, to make this world abetter place for all mankind!
Your Desert Rose!


  1. I am so sorry for your loss...

  2. He was a special man and I'm glad he was recognized so well! I hope the family is doing ok. Hugs to you and HP.

  3. I hope everyone is hanging in there. It's hard to lose a loved one, no matter how old they are. Love you.

  4. This made me cry! What a wonderful man he was.
    My thoughts are with you all!

  5. He will be missed. You are right, we all can learn from such a wonderful, giving, caring man.
    He was an angel. HUGS.

  6. What an honor to be so recognized. I'm sure he left this world knowing he was loved.

  7. So sorry for your loss...Take comfort in knowing he had such a great life, and made life great for so many others....

  8. It is so rare knowing a person who, by just being in their vary presence, makes you yearn to be a better person. Everything I've heard and read demonstrates your brother-n-law was that kind of person. He will be missed by so many people.

  9. What a wonderful tribute to Abe...what a special man, the world needs more men like him.


We wish you Happy Trails
Jesse and his Desert Rose!
