Remembering Ronald Griffin, who received the gift of life from late UNC mascot


The family and friends entered the small Irvington church dressed in black, but they also carried a small sliver of baby blue. It was a decal featuring the University of North Carolina ram mascot, and as the mourners walked past Ronald Griffin’s casket, they placed it inside. The gesture, coming a few hundred miles away from Tobacco Road, might have seemed strange to anyone who did not know this story. (Newark Star-Ledger)
