It struck as sweet and poignant, this gentle butterfly poised on a memorial stone, its fragile wings shading the name of a loved one.
Curious, I Googled the honoree, John Pep Panelli, and was surprised when I actually found him: John Panelli, Man of Action. He was a fullback at Notre Dame from 1945-1948, and according to the article he was "a fast and very cagey runner, a smashing blocker and a 'savage' tackler on defense. When Panelli hit them 'they stayed hit'."
You gotta love the irony.
