What's amazing is that Robert Kraft has been one of the most vocal figures on the NFL's labor committee working with the players to find a new labor agreement. He and the Cowboys' Jerry Jones are arguably the most influential owners in the league and Kraft negotiated with the players while racing back to be at his wife's bedside.

Myra Kraft was legendary in the philanthropic community so her presence will be missed by many.
