A Massachusetts woman who died last Monday at the age of 72 will forever be remembered in her obituary for her loyalty to New England Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady.

Patricia M. Shong, who is from Auburn, was a retired worker from Digital Equipment Corporation who enjoyed a bevy of hobbies — from scrapbooking to reading. But one line in her obituary stood out: "She especially loved spending time with her family. She would also like us to set the record straight for her: Brady is innocent!" reports Arizona Sports.

ESPN Sports Reporter Darren Rovell posted a photo of the obituary on his Twitter page:

The NFL suspended Brady on May 11 for the first four games of the 2015 season after learning of his involvement in helping to deflate balls to give the Patriots an advantage during games. Brady's plan to appeal his suspension will not reportedly be heard by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell in time to meet the 10-day appeals deadline, reports Sports Illustrated. In addition to suspending the quarterback, the NFL fined the Patriots $1 million and docked them two draft picks.
