13. Thank you for posting that
That was really nice of you. Yes, the whole town, really the whole state, is in mourning. Saturday morning I took flowers to the memorial that has sprung up at Schembechler Hall. My entire family went to Michigan so they were from all of us. Yesterday there was a three hour visitation at the church for the public. In the huge line that went down the street and around the block were former players who had dug out their letter jackets, coaches from other schools including MSU's George Perles who had the saddest face I've ever seen, and hundreds of fans. One little girl about ten years old was holding her father's hand and whispering to him "Don't cry."

We all feel as though a light has gone out. It's hard to imagine Ann Arbor and Michigan without Bo.

When I was driving home from work today, the day of Bo's funeral, the western sky was filled with dark gray-blue clouds. Directly under them was a pale yellow -- maize -- streak of sky. God was welcoming Bo....and He seems to have been showing his colors; He's a Michigan fan.

RIP, Bo. We love you and will miss you.
