    Cyclone nation loses one of its own

    I was at the iowa game and the loss was nothing compared to what I lost on Monday. My dad , a life long cyclone fan fell to the dreaded word cancer. My dad loved nothing more than to tailgate with family and friends and even opposing fans. he would always be gracious to anyone that came by to tailgate. After football it was on to basketball where he had season tickets since the lynn nance years. He loved HILTON MAGiC and was proud to call himself a cyclone fan. I will miss the opportunity to go games and sit with him in Jack Trice and Hilton

    So anyone who sees the loss of anygame (football or basketball) as serious remember it is just a game, there is much more to life than just a game

    Very sorry for your loss, blood94. Lost my dad to leukemia, and I learned that what you have to remember is that his suffering is now over and he is at peace. Please let that comfort you as you mourn.

    My thoughts are with you. It is events like this that put life in perspective. It is easy to forget how precious life is and how we need to cherish the time we have with our friends and family. Thank you for sharing.

    Re: Cyclone nation loses one of its own

    My deepest sympathy, my friend. I lost both of my parents some time ago.Lean on loved ones, it won't make it easy, but helps the healing. Life is just part of the journey, now your father can continue his. Cherish his memory.


    If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right!!

    My sympathies. Losing a parent is tough. Cherishing memories of good times and not the end was helpful for me.
