TRob has lost two grandparents and his mother in the last three weeks. Dealing with just one of those is horrendous, let alone three in three weeks. My heart breaks for him.

Use this time to build a deeper relationship with the Creator! My God's grace touch you and bring you serenity.

The Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. Amen.

I know Darnell Jackson went through some similiar stuff back when he played for us. Might be a good guy to get ahold of and lean on during this tough time.
