There is a poster by the name of "WolverineBill" at the GBW Forums who also has his own fledgling blog. His 20 year old son, Nick, who was born with a congenital heart condition, passed away Friday following an operation.
I'm sure all Wolverines join me in offering Bill their best wishes and prayers at this difficult time.
Helps put our sporting obsession into perspective, doesn't it? For whatever reason, it has me thinking of the words of the late Jim Valvano:
"To me, there are three things we all should do every day. We should do this every day of our lives. Number one is laugh. You should laugh every day. Number two is think. You should spend some time in thought. And number three is, you should have your emotions moved to tears, could be happiness or joy. But think about it. If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you're going to have something special."
