Man, Ray is a cool dude. After he won MVP my dad was bowling in Jillians in Arundle Mills Mall and Lewis walked in and kind of gave my dad an attitude. My dad still has hard feelings because Ray didn't sign his jersey but I bet my dad was drunk or something lol Duane Starks signed a Ray Lewis jersey for my dad though. The guy who caught a pick 6 in the superbowl, number 22. I want to get my dad that signed jersey from "Lou Lou" as Lewis' ball had written on it.

I'm not a religious guy, and Ray can be a little sappy for me at times.

But theres no denying that he inspires people. It's great that Ray has used his influence to make a positive difference in people's lives.

How touching. Very beautiful. Nice to see how Ray's love period--for football, for God, for people--is a blessing to many people.

All of those people that speak of Ray in a negative light are fools and if they only knew how special he was, they would NEVER speak about his early life and what happened around him.

As I was reading the story, I was trying to figure out what Ray would say to Jeffrey and I just couldn't come up with something that didn't feel like a cliche'. Then when I read what he said, it left me speechless. Leave it to Ray to bring with him compassion and courage, and plant it right into that young man's heart. Incredible.

Ray Lewis isn't just a leader to his teammates, but he shares a warm and compassionate feeling to all Ravens' fans(including those who are going through terrible tragedies).

And that my friends is why Ray Lewis is the best player to ever play the game period! Just know that it is special to have seen Ray play. There will never be another like him.

There is a reason he is the G.O.A.T. and his athleticism is only part of the reason. Just like when he met with Bill Warble, this story is the same. Such a heart of compassion for others....it makes me proud to say he truly embodies what it means to be a Raven.

Has Ray lived a perfect live? Probably not (as the old news reports indicated) but he has been an inspiration both on and off the field for a long, long time!

This is hard to put in perspective, but Ray may actually make a bigger impact as a person, than as a football player when all is said and done.

People who have never experienced tragedy do not realize how big a gesture this is. I apologize if this is TMI, but my family has been there. When my 16 year old daughter was killed my son was 12. We were all crushed, but despite our best efforts he never truly recovered. Looking at this, and considering how we were affected I can only wonder if someone of Ray's stature had intervened shown an interest if it would have made a difference.
Things like this speak to Ray's character, compassion, and empathy.

That's very touching, and I feel for the young man and his family. Life can be so painful; and it's moments such as this that can make the pain subside, even if only for a short time.

I've never met Ray, but he really does seem like a genuinely sweet person. To me, that's what a real man is. Not some pseudo tough guy, always trying to be hard.

If more people were like Ray, maybe we'd get along with each other a little bit more.

Stay strong, Jeffrey...no matter what happens.

Wow this is sad. I really feel bad for the family and the young guy. I cant even imagine the load that is upon heart right now. Ray is a good dude all around. That was very nice of him. But Ray knows something that I also know. This may have been a big event for that family to undertake but if there is one that I am sure about more than anything in this world it is that my God is Bigger! Just keep praying lil man and looking up. Your sis will be ok. Its all in His hands now.
