"The match began with Jim and Kim Morgan Gregory‘s son Ben and grandchildren standing with the team as honorary captains during the player introductions. The Gregories are longtime Battery fans who are deeply connected to the club. The team honored their son Thyler Greory, who died in a car accident last summer, during their 2012 championship ring presentation ceremony.
Kim can often been spotted working the sidelines as a photographer, and when I’m feeling flush I buy her shots to use on this site. But last night she simply stood with her husband Jim and soaked in the moment while her grandkids posed with the team. And while I won’t quote what she said to me privately in conversation, I figure it’s OK for me to paraphrase it and write that the family has been moved and lifted by support from the team over the past year. It’s a sad story, but I think the connection between the family and the team is both real and mutual." http://www.chssoccer.net/richmond-wrap-were-together/#comment-383
