    He is going to miss the game tomorrow night to go home and spend time with his 9-year old sister. Their mother suffered a fatal heart attack last Friday. She was 37 years old. He also lost a set of grandparents since the beginning of the year.

    Very sad. I hope the young man sees better times ahead.

    Can't imagine what he's going through right now. Prayers & hopes for better days ahead for this kid & his sister.

    Especially for the little girl.

    Horrible.

    I don't mean to go off topic on such a serious thread, but I was reading this morning that Brian Griese lost his mom when he was 12. After the Broncos, he founded a community/house for children to spend time after losing a parent -- in honor of his mom, Judi. (Judi's House).

    I cannot imagine how awful this is for these kids. I can only hope that Thomas and his sister have some kind of support, emotional and otherwise. They have a tough tough time ahead of them both.
