Ticket Stub: New Jersey Devils / Philadelphia Flyers

Ed and I followed the Philadelphia Flyers a great deal when we lived in the Philly area. The company he worked for had season tickets, so we went to a number of games. I will post ticket stubs from those games at a later date. 

The ticket stubs I show here are from a New Jersey Devils game. Ed's paternal aunt and her husband lived in N.J., and in February 1997 they invited us to spend the weekend with them. Uncle Charlie knew we were Flyers fans, so he hooked us up with tickets to the game against the Devils. We had a great time with Aunt Ann Marie and Uncle Charlie, and I have such fond memories of my time with them.

A few months after the game we moved to Minnesota, and Ed's aunt and uncle moved to the Atlanta, GA area. We met up with them a few times more at family weddings / funerals. Uncle Charlie died this February, and Aunt Ann Marie just passed away five days ago. They both suffered with cancer for a few years. They were terrific people, who would give you the shirt off their back. It was a pleasure to know them.

Eternal rest grant unto them , O Lord. And may perpetual light shine upon them.

  1. $60 for Devils tickets! We really didn't realize how nice we had it back in '97 ;)
