Unhappy Gretzky's mom Phyllis, dies at 64

TORONTO -- Phyllis Gretzky, the mother of hockey Hall of Famer Wayne Gretzky, died Monday night, the Phoenix Coyotes said. She was 64. She was diagnosed with lung cancer late in 2004 and died two nights after her son took an indefinite leave of absence as coach of the Coyotes to return home to Ontario to be with her.
The "glue" of the family, Phyllis Gretzky is survived by her husband, all five children, and 12 grandchildren.

Thats sad. My condolences to the Gretzky family, and hopefully Wayne can return to coaching sometime soon.

Very sad news. You knew it was serious when he stepped down from the team.

Good news, Gretzky is returning: http://sports.myway.com/news/12282005/v5211.html

Hopefully, coaching will help him get past the tragedy.

Wow, these are some tough times for Wayne Gretzky. Once again, my prayers go out to him and his family.
