Everyone experiences their own moments of reflection and compassion each September 11, and for the Kings organization, its fans, and the sport of hockey, and most of all for the Bailey and Bavis families, there is again the reminder that two great lives were taken far too soon. In Ace and Mark’s memory, all are welcome to donate to the Ace Bailey Children’s Foundation, which improves the well-being and surroundings of children undergoing pediatric care at the Floating Hospital for Children in Boston, and the Mark Bavis Leadership Foundation, which provides grants for school tuition, summer programs and extracurricular activities.
Over at MNWild.com, Dan Myers caught up with Bruce Boudreau, who recalled his final moments with Ace Bailey and how September 11 unfolded both personally and professionally.
Peace be with all of you on this September 11.
