Yes Patty,  I am still the biggest Titan Fan and have the best seats for each and every game! In Heaven We do Have Football! The game may be played a little different for God is our Coach and No limit on the players the game is full of laughter and joy and everyone is a winner! Love you! Bubba!


Bubba loved Tennessee Titan Football well here is a actual picture of our Coliseum which is the Titans Home field. Picture below this is Bubba at one of the games.





Bubba, it was always GO Titans and Vanderbilt. When the Tennessee Vols would win against the Vanderbilt Commandors, I would always call you and sing "Rocky Top" you always hated that song besides telling me I could not sing! I thought I sounded pretty darn good, especially singing to you!
Remember the Indianapolis trip to see the Titans play the Colts? There was no place to sit at the restaurant that we went to before the game. So you being your funny self decided to go over to a Colts Fans table and start carrying on a conversation with them. All of us that was with you tried to act as if we did not know you!!!! They got tried of listening to your silliness's that you always carried on,so they got up and left. I have to say we did get a table pretty darn quick!
Also the trip to Atlanta to see the Titans play the St. Louis Rams for the SUPER BOWL! We had a BLAST, remember as we were crossing the street the policeman that was holding the traffic for us you tried to get him to carry me to Jail. You told him I was mis-behaving and he said not today son! I miss those times so much but when I get to Heaven with you we will do this again!
You were the first one of us to reach Heaven with Jesus, and I just can't imagine the fireworks, the Angels, the beautiful music and the glorious streets that you are walking on. Until we meet again my little brother, loving you came easy, missing you has come HARD!
Your Sis always, Patty

Football Player


Bob Richards, the former pole-vault champion, shares a moving story

about a skinny young boy who loved football with all his heart.

Practice after practice, he eagerly gave everything he had. But

being half the size of the other boys, he got absolutely nowhere. At all

the games, this hopeful athlete sat on the bench and hardly ever played.

This teenager lived alone with his father, and the two of them had a

very special relationship. Even though the son was always on the bench, his father was always in the stands cheering.


He never missed a game. This young man was still the smallest of the

class when he entered high school. His father continued to encourage him but also made it very clear that he did not have to play football if he didn't want to. But the young man loved football and decided to hang in there. He was determined to try his best at every practice, and perhaps he'd get to play when he became a senior. All through high school he never missed a practice nor a game but remained a bench-warmer all four years.


His faithful father was always in the stands, always with words of

encouragement for him. When the young man went to college, he decided to try out for the football team as a "walk-on." Everyone was sure he could never make the cut, but he did. The coach admitted that he kept him on the roster because he always puts his heart and soul to every practice, and at the same time, provided the other members with the spirit and hustle they badly needed.


The news that he had survived the cut thrilled him so much that he

rushed to the nearest phone and called his father. His father shared his

excitement and was sent season tickets for all the college games.

This persistent young athlete never missed practice during his four

years at college, but he never got to play in a game. It was the end of

his senior football season, and as he trotted onto the practice field

shortly before the big playoff game, the coach met him with a telegram.

The young man read the telegram and he became deathly silent. Swallowing hard, he mumbled to the coach, "My father died this morning. Is it all right if I miss practice today?"


The coach put his arm gently around his shoulder and said, "Take the

rest of the week off, son. And don't even plan to come back to the game

on Saturday." Saturday arrived, and the game was not going well. In the third quarter, when the team was ten points behind, a silent young man quietly slipped into the empty locker room and put on his football gear.  As he ran onto the sidelines, the coach and his players were astounded to see their faithful teammate back so soon.


"Coach, please let me play. I've just got to play today," said the young

man. The coach pretended not to hear him. There was no way he wanted his worst player in this close playoff game. But the young man persisted, and finally feeling sorry for the kid, the coach gave in. "All right," he said. "You can go in."


Before long, the coach, the players and everyone in the stands could

not believe their eyes. This little unknown, who had never played before was doing everything right. The opposing team could not stop him. He ran, he passed, blocked, and tackled like a star. His team began to triumph.


The score was soon tied. In the closing seconds of the game, this kid

intercepted a pass and ran all the way for the winning touchdown. The

fans broke loose. His teammates hoisted him onto their shoulders. Such

cheering you never heard.


Finally, after the stands had emptied and the team had showered and

left the locker room, the coach noticed that this young man was sitting

quietly in the corner all alone The coach came to him and said, "Kid, I

can't believe it. You were fantastic! Tell me what got into you? How did

you do it?" He looked at the coach, with tears in his eyes, and said,

"Well, you knew my dad died, but did you know that my dad was blind?" The young man swallowed hard and forced a smile, "Dad came to all my games, but today was the first time he could see me play, and I wanted to show him I could do it!"


Like the athlete's father, God is always there cheering for us. Our

loving  God is always reminding us to go on, offering us a

hand, knowing what is best, giving us what we need and not simply what we want. God has never missed a single game. What a joy to know that life is meaningful if lived for the Highest. Live for the Creator, who is watching us in the game of life!



When you look upon

the dark of night and see a

twinkle of light, remember that it is your Angel,

 the star that shines so bright!

Letting you know he is with you and loves you so!
