It is with extreme sadness that we write this today. Our member, volunteer and dear friend, Willie Fordham, the Negro Leagues Baseball player who has been the center point of our exhibit, passed away suddenly early this morning at Holy Spirit Hospital in Harrisburg. He will be greatly missed. He was a true gentleman, a delight to talk to and a good friend. Willie had just turned 83 in July. His funeral arrangements are pending. May he rest in peace.
