Woman Whose Dying Wish Was to See Rangers Win World Series Died Wednesday

A 76-year-old woman from Red Oak, Texas was a huge Rangers fan and her wish was to see the Rangers win the World Series.

“I only want to live long enough to see the Rangers win the World Series,” Heneri Ann Short told her doctor last week.

Short’s dying wish looked like it may come true after the Rangers took a series lead by winning Game 5 in Arlington.

Unfortunately, Game 6 was postponed until Thursday because of the weather in St. Louis, and Short died on Wednesday night after losing her fight with cancer.

Texas doesn’t need any more pressure to close out the World Series, but it wouldn’t hurt to win it for Short.

Let’s just hope that Heneri Ann’s family has the sense to leave that out of her obituary.

    I can understand if she was a life~long fan, and the Rangers being SO close to their first World Series win ever… makes for a logical dying wish. Every so often the news highlights older fellas who have been to every game of their favorite teams, whether it be football or baseball. Now, I’d love to see my Mariners where the Rangers are now, but I am not sure ANYone could live that long. @@! GO Rangers! WIN it for Texas & WIN it for Heneri Ann! <3
