Wife Honors David Ortiz With Emotional Tribute

June 17, 2019 - 11:32 pm

(WEEI) Tiffany Ortiz posted a Father's Day tribute to her husband, David Ortiz, on Sunday as he recovers at Massachusetts General Hospital after being shot in the Dominican Republic just over a week ago.

 

This Fathers Day brings with it a new appreciation for life and an awareness in what truly matters. This man, my husband, the father of our beautiful children has been the center of our universe for as long as we have been together (23years strong). It has been deeply felt that the outside world also acknowledges his presence as a father figure to all. Please celebrate this Papi's Day with the ones you love. Be present in every moment, don't get hung up on gifts, material things, titles, fame or fortune. Those things can be taken away in a moments notice and all we are left with is the memories of the moments we truly connected and grounded ourselves in true love ? #PapisDay #Fathersday #surroundyourselveswithreallove #groundyourselfinnature #connectwithgod #allwehaveisthepresentmoment #familyovereverything #weallhaveapurposeinlife #iambeyondgrateful #pleasekeepPapiinyourprayers ------

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "We were on the road a lot, came home for a couple days and then back on the road again so I hadn't seen him in a couple of weeks. It was nice to have him out there. He was excited to see me. He knew I was out there in the bullpen." -- Brandon Workman, on reuniting with his 2-year-old son Grayson in the bullpen earlier this month
