It's so shocking when it happens so quickly. Worse for the family, better for the person who doesn't have to suffer. Reminds me of how my father passed in 2013, which I'm still having a hard time with because I wasn't prepared and never got to say goodbye.
The best way for me to deal with it is knowing that he didn't suffer.

RIP Nick Cafardo. Terrible tragedy. Way too young. I just read his article this morning about Pearce as he was railing against modern baseball wisdom discounting veteran players. Can't believe he's gone.
Very sad to hear. Loved getting the globe on sunday morning and getting to his Sunday baseball notes column (pre internet).
Exactly what I was thinking about with Nick Carfardo... getting the Boston papers to read his and Gammons baseball columns and get that insight as you said pre-internet. Loved his passion for the game. Just shocking news...gone too soon.

Sad day....While I didn't always agree with Nick Cafardo I always looked forward to his Sunday baseball column as he clearly put in a lot of work to research and write it. You can tell a lot about a person and how they lived their life by what people say about them when the person passes. Clearly Cafardo was very well respected as a writer and even more as a person who treated everyone with respect. RIP Nick Cafardo and may your friends and family find some peace in the days ahead as they morne your passing.
Rest in Peace, Nick. He enjoyed life and the game of baseball and its people more than most people I have met. He was truly interested in the players and their personal issues and personal hopes and achievements. He may have been old school, but most fans are, and he was comfortable with the game, it’s history, and himself as part of it. He could write about the game with a certain beauty and poignance which, (in a needlessly venomous Boston media), will be sorely missed. Thanks Nick.
Shocking and tragic. Even my 90 year-old Yankee fan dad knew of Nick and enjoyed reading his columns.
My deepest condolences to his family and friends. RIP Nick Cafardo...
They call me "The Spaceman," but I'm really down to earth -- I think. I have my days. I don't hear as well as I used to, but you can't blame that on marijuana. I gotta blame that on high altitudes and Led Zeppelin -- they were good musicians.
