Please extend our deepest gratitude and heartfelt thanks to the thousands who responded to Rick Reilly's article and sent messages via fax to Doak Walker. It will take us a while to read them all, but we have laughed and cried as we shared each fax with him.
Of course he has always been our hero, but now we have a clearer picture of what the word means. As we watch his daily struggle against all odds, his sense of humor, undaunted spirit and immeasurable heart are constant reminders of the values that define the man we call husband, dad and grandfather.
