I wanted to share this because I understand how much Don Shula is revered as a football coach, but there’s a lot more to him than that. My nephew was able to meet Don and speak with him for a few minutes at his best friend’s wedding back in March – along with Mary Anne and the rest of the Shula family. My nephew was the best man in his best friend’s wedding, where he was getting married to one of Don and Mary Anne’s granddaughters. My nephew is 26 years old and currently receiving his Master’s Degree from the University of Alabama. Obviously he’s a big Bama guy like his uncle. Well, my nephew’s best friend and his wife (Don and Mary Anne’s granddaughter) typically go down to spend time with the Shula family for Christmas/New Year’s Eve, and since Alabama was playing Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl around the same time, my nephew and his wife were invited to come down with them to spend time with the Shula family and attend the Orange Bowl. My nephew and his wife were invited to the Shula’s home to eat together and spend time with Don and the family. They put them up in a hotel down the street from Don’s home and were treated like royalty – better yet, they were treated like family. My nephew doesn’t follow the NFL much outside of what his fantasy football team is doing, but he did say that he did get to talk about the Dolphins a little with Don. I cannot express enough my gratitude and appreciation to Don, Mary Anne, and the entire Shula family for how well they treated my family. They’re all such wonderful people who are very family oriented and treat others the way they would want to be treated. For that, I am truly grateful.
