I didn't know where else to put this but here.
Some of you may recall the Morris / Schembechler incident. I had forgotten about it until I read the obituary and then recalled being impressed at the time by the intern taking on two local heroes and being impressed by the Freep standing up for her. Unfortunately, for the last several years she has been fighting her own inner demons.https://www.washingtonpost.com/national ... story.html
In a random bit of life, for the last few years, Jennifer's daughter Ryan has been living with her bachelor uncle, one of the brothers mentioned in the piece. Said uncle is a work colleague / occasional drinking partner. The uncle has done a phenomenal job of raising a teenage girl. For example, he taught her acoustic guitar and then browbeat a group of us in coming out to cheer her on at her first open mic night at age 15 to help her build confidence in her skills. We did it happily. He has done the kind of things that make you ask yourself whether you would have the fortitude, skills and compassion to step up as ably. Solid, solid guy.
I had no idea who her mother was until the uncle shared the obituary. Dude is gutted as one would expect.
