    Killebrew was pure class. A great athlete and a great man. He is a model for all professional athletes. RIP.

  2. CJ says:

    I met Harmon a couple of years ago and know him as a wonderful, kind man. The fact that he is a baseball great is purely secondary to the compassionate soul he has.

    This tribute surely could’ve have done without 15 paid advertisements. Very tacky WCCO. Shame on you…

    1. Mike Hertling says:

      Typical media, find a way to profit of someones loss. Advertisements thrown into a memorial photo album? You would think they would have the respect to not do it with such a local hero. I am embarrassed to have WCCO as my home news page. Consider yourselves my new number 2 news station. My heart is with the Killebrew family, we lost an icon but they lost much more.
