According to a story in the Boston Herald, David' Ortiz father, Enrique, has been battling a serious illness since last fall. “It was devastating,” Ortiz told the paper. “I lost my Mom (Angela) eight years ago and she was the love of my life; still is. They couldn’t do anything. She died in a car accident and that was it. That hurt. (When I learned about my father) I was in shock. I felt exactly the same way I felt when my Mom passed away - that cold feeling, where you don’t know what to do? I had exactly the same feeling. It hit me pretty bad.
“Sometimes there are things you see coming and you can kind of get ready for it. This wasn’t like that. But we’re dealing with the situation and things are getting better. But it’s a tough situation, because one day you’re feeling great and the next you’re not. When I see him struggle like that, it hurts me. I haven’t learned how to deal with it.”
