My dad passed away this past Saturday. He was a good Auburn man and a graduate of 1977. As his casket was rolled out of the church after the service, the Auburn Alma Mater was played on the piano. Very moving. He loved his family and loved Auburn.
On a lighter note, his death signals a good football season to come. History is on our side. Let me explain. When my grandmother passed away in January of 1993, Auburn had an undefeated season. My grandfather died in December of 2012 after the disastrous 2012 season. He died the day Gus was named coach (we believe this pushed him over the edge, lol). Obviously, the next season in 2013 was one of the ages. Now that my father has passed, history indicates another good season. Let's hope it repeats itself.
Here's to another great season.
