Today the world lost a legend in the world of women’s basketball. I lost the most influential person in my life other than my mother, and I only met her once. Pat Summitt was an amazing woman who not only talked the talk, she walked the walk. I wish I could have played for her, but that was never in the cards for me. Instead she showed me from a distance how to impact the lives of others that you may never know.
She was kind, and smart and generous. You never hear people speak badly of her and I’m talking over thirty years of being in the spotlight. I am totally heartbroken and I wish her friends and family well. I pray they find comfort in the outpouring of love from all over the world for this great woman. Thank you Pat for sharing your gifts with the world. You are loved so much more than you ever knew. God has called home an angel and you better be sure she’s wearing Orange and singing Rocky Top!
