My sympathies go out to LT, his family, and the friends of his father at this time.

On a similar note, I am not sure how to phrase this correctly, but isn't it a relief to hear about a player, or players family member, that when they do pass away, passes away of normal issues of life? Not drugs, not something weird, just a normal issue of life?
