GREEN BAY, Wis.--Cari Vandezande wipes away tears grieving a loss.
"What a classy man. Very very classy, very true, very big heart," fan Cari Vandezande said.
Fans pack Stadium View to watch Donald Driver say goodbye.
"It was perfect. Very emotional. He summed up a great career, and I wish him the best," fan Kevin Bohn said.
The bar even has a lunch special, the "Double D" Texas burger.
"The shelf life on Donald Driver stuff is pretty much forever," Mike Walters said, who's manager of The Jersey Store.
The store is selling collector pennants.
"Which says thanks for the memories number 80. It lists the years he played and everything and has pictures of him with that million dollar smile he always flashes on there," Walters said.
The football player statue in front of Titletown will also pay tribute to Driver with the number changing to 80, and his name put on the back of the statue's jersey.
Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt says the street the restaurant is on will be changed to Donald Driver Way.
