In Memory

Myra Kraft - December 27, 1942 – July 20, 2011

July 20th will always be remembered as a sad day for all of Patriots Nation due to the passing of Myra Kraft who lost her courageous battle with cancer, she was 68. A wonderful lady who was more than the wife of Bob Kraft owner of the New England Patriots, she was a woman that spent her life giving to others. Her tireless efforts through the Robert and Myra Kraft Family Foundation and the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation along with numerous other charity works will stand as her legacy. Her smiling face and tenacious attitude when it came to these charities will never be equaled.

Condolences have come in from past and present players expressing all the same message as in Coach Bill Belichick’s stated, “In the humanitarian arena, her generosity through philanthropy was admired and appreciated by all. She made a permanent impression on hundreds of coaches, players, staff and our families as a model of grace, strength and giving. Myra’s vision and example will impact and remain very much with our team forever.”

 

On behalf of our fan club, I know you all join me in expressing our sincere condolences to Mr. Robert Kraft and family on their loss.
