Greg Halman. RIP. Seattle Mariners. 1987-2011.

FROM GREG’S GIRLFRIEND:

Thank you for these beautiful pictures of my love Greg! I see it now for the first time. When I see these photo’s it feels like Greg is still alive….

He lived his dream and I respected that. Even though he was far away from me. But I knew he would always come back to me and his family. He was a person that had a good heart, would listen to you and give you advice. He always took the time to learn childeren some baseball or have a talk with them. To himself he was second place.

He didn’t wanted people to know who I was, cuz he felt that he needed to protect me from the media, his life. He always wanted me to do my own things here in the Netherlands. I know understand why… after this whole drama, I can take my time, knowing that he’s always with me, so I can give this all a place somewhere… But it’s gonna be a long road… A long hard painful road…

But I wanna thank the fans and many people in the USA that give (and still give) us love, hope & strenght! All the emails we received from ya’ll and the beautiful photo’s of Greg! I can’t thank ya’ll enough! I love you guys!

This is my first and last words about Greg. I felt that I needed to say this on this page, where the most beautiful pictures of Greg is. Cause these pictures they took my heart!

This is him, the real Greg, at his best …. His life, his dream.. His first love! He always gonna be a superstar!

He’s a true legend now! “My Underground King”

Love Always, M.

It is always a tragedy when I life gets taken from us.  Especially when it is someone young, with so much personality, character, talent and potential.  Greg Halman was still so young, and had barely even begun his promising profession career as a major leager.  I am always thankful for the opportunity to be on the field with great players, and I will always remember my time in the photo pit when Halman was on the field.  The Seattle Mariners will be missing his smile and personality for years to come.

    I know that I said that I wouldn’t say anything anymore about my love Greg. I often visite your webpage for his photo’s and your work. And I saw that you’ve put my comment above Greg’s pictures. Thank you for that!

    It’s good to read your beautiful words about Greg. I know that Greg touched so many hearts and I hope that you, Jeff, understand that your work is very important! Cuz of your great job we can go back in a time and place where Greg was himself, as always with the biggest smile on his face, where he was happy and loved to do what he did best! I personally feel like when I look at these pictures that he’s still here with us. It feels so real, but no, there’s that wake up call again that he ain’t here no more. That hurts a lot …

    I miss him so much! Everyday I pray that me and the family will be okay, that my brother-in-law Jay will be better soon and that the guys of Seattle Mariners are doing well. I know for sure that Greg is there with them when they play a game. Greg loved them so much! When he was here with me he would always tell me what they ment for him. His fans, the childeren that looked up to him .. He was definitely a rolemodel for the childeren in Holland and in America.

    He always did his best and I know that he would come far as a major leage player! I believed in him, respected him and his career. The bond that we shared was so unbreakable. And still is ..

    We had 2 songs that we listen often weeks before he died. Like the songs were meant to be at that time. Now they mean the world to me. It’s Drake – Underground King & Rick Ross feat. Kelly Rowland – Mine Games. They are rapsongs but that was one of the kind of music that we listen to.

    That’s why I call Greg now ‘My Underground King’ … cuz he is! ‘He did it for the city cuz you know the city loved that boy’

    Thank you Jeff!! Many thanks!! I appreciate you and your great job! I know that Greg would be also. Cuz when he saw photo’s of himself he would always make a joke like ‘Babe who is that handsome guy uh?? Is that me?? Take a goooooooooooood look at that picture babe!! Is that ME??’ And then I would be quiet and trying not laugh. But he would already laugh as hard as he could …

    So keep doing what your doing Jeff!! 😉 And make a whole lot a of pictures of every player that you can, cuz life ……. is to short! You never know!

    Another thank you to all the fans and people from the USA for all the love!

    As Greg always said ‘No Grind No Shine’ but he had it all! A True Legend!

    Love Always, MHH
