Dan's cousin gave us BYU game tickets. We had so much fun! When we got to the game I found out my sister and her boyfriend were also at the game, when I talked to her, she said, "oh, did you come with dad and Ric?" .."what my dad and my favorite person Ric are here too??" How lucky is that? We had seats at the opposite end of my family members but at half time my dad had us all come to seats that were empty by them. We had a blast, we took MANY pictures and enjoyed all sitting by each other!
Here is a picture of me and my favorite Ric Thompson! This day was especially special to me because Ric ended up passing away just 5 days after this game. I feel VERY fortunate to have been able to spend some time with Ric and to get a awesome picture with him! Ric had been battling brain cancer for the past three years. If any of you are familiar with his story, his two daughters also passed away from brain cancer, one 7 years ago and the other I believe 5 years ago. One of the crazy things about it was that Ric passed away on the 7 year anniversary of his daughter Alex's passing. I bet his daughters were sure glad to see him! I know I would be! He's my HERO!My sister Kelsey with Ric and my dad!Kels and her boy Brian.Sister love.Me and my buddy!Such a special and amazing day, a day I will never forget! ...ps. BYU won! :)
