I was quite moved by Bob Hohler’s article about Bobby Orr (“No. 4 to history, No. 1 to many in need,” Page A1, Sept. 29). I am of a generation that remembers how great he was as our Number 4 on the Boston Bruins. Orr could have done many things with his life after his playing days were over. To read how he has taken his fame down this altruistic path of helping others, in such a quiet and humble manner, really touched me.
As a social worker, I know how much need is out there. I’m not very religious, but I would say Orr is a saint.
