As soon as my dad died on Saturday night I texted my oldest son Gabe telling him that Papa T had passed away. He and my middle son Nathan were at Nathan's championship basketball game (Nathan's middle name is Stephan-after my dad). Thirty minutes after Gabe received word and passed it on to Nate during the game, Nate (wearing number 14) made this shot to win the game - and the championship. I was so sorry I missed it. But it was so sweet of God to grant my grieving boys, and my dad's namesake, something to cheer about.
