Editor’s note: In response to Kerry Temple’s Soundings: Post-game wrap-up, we received this letter, which we now share with you:
My name is Shawn Kearney. After reading your article, I wanted to share something with you.
My brother and I own a sports bar, outside of Philadelphia. It’s in Milmont Park, Pennsylvania. The bar is called the Milmont Inn.
This past Halloween we lost one of our best friends and brother. His name was Daniel ‘Doc’ Dougherty and loved Notre Dame, through and through. He was an 845 union carpenter, father and one of the greatest guys I have ever had the pleasure of associating with. He had a massive heart attack and the coroner said he had the most enlarged heart he had ever seen. I didn’t need a coroner to tell me that.
