You're Remembered, #35

Two Celtic heroes


Today marks the 16th anniversary of the death of Reggie Lewis.  I'd encourage everyone to read the wonderful article on Reggie that they have up at LOY's Place.

I know for me, Reggie Lewis dying is one of the vivid memories of my adolescent years.  In my own memory, only the explosion of the Challenger shuttle brings back the same sort of "I remember exactly where I was when I heard the news" from that era.  Losing Reggie in the prime of his life was tragic for all Celtics fans.

I'm not eloquent enough to properly put the beauty of Reggie's game, and the tragedy of his death, into words.  I'd encourage folks to post their memories below, in an attempt to do justice to this great Celtics legend.
