Jean Béliveau passed away yesterday at the age of 83. When the news broke, the stories, as they do, came out from all corners of the hockey world. He seems to have made time for everyone who needed or wanted some with him. Lots of stories, even I had one from the past few years:
A few years ago i went to a card show. I had my mom's hockey cards after she passed. Beliveau was there, I was almost last in line.— Falalalala lalalala (@ElSeldo) December 3, 2014
Finally got to him, he took his time, very careful with his signature. Stopped to look through the cards with me.— Falalalala lalalala (@ElSeldo) December 3, 2014
Said my mom took good care of her cards and I was good for keeping them safe for her. Thanks Jean, for the kind words when they were needed— Falalalala lalalala (@ElSeldo) December 3, 2014
