I just found out about this tragedy today and i was totally shocked as i was expecting to have one of our ongoing sports discussions which we had almost every Friday afternoon for as long as i can remember. I will miss him tremendously. I send my thoughts, prayers and condolences toward all members of the family. May he rest in peace and reunite with his dad in the afterlife.
