@KormannAlex: The @Colts head coach just sent me a personal letter regarding the loss of my father. Made me cry. @ESPNNFL @nfl

Here is the letter:


I understand that you and I have something in common – a commitment to living in a vision rather than circumstance. Throughout my personal journey with cancer, I have been fortunate to receive many words of encouragement from great people like you. Now, it is my turn to return the favor.

I know that your family has faced some challenging times in the loss of your father, Russ, and it has not been the easiest to pull through. Tough days are inevitable in any battle that attempts to challenge our family and spirit. Know that it is in these extremely difficult times that your strength is revealed in greater ways than you will ever imagine.

I know that you are all loyal Colts fans, so I am hoping that your family will accept the enclosed autographed photo as a small token of appreciation for your great efforts. Again, thank you for your support. I pray for your family and that you will continue to focus on the vision you have for your lives together, knowing that the entire Indianapolis Colts family is cheering you on to live out that vision.
