Well this is shocking and depressing (http://blogs.chron.com/texanschick/2009/01/there_are_no_words_but_words_a.html).

Unbelievable. He was only 36.

There's a small, but fairly tight-knit group of Texans bloggers out there. To lose one is quite a shock.

Rest in Peace, TH.

In the comments of JLR's blog, he mentions they think it was an aneurysm.

Very sad.

So true Herv, we never know when it our time could be up, we really must strive not to take that for granted. Each day is truly a blessing.


This is sad news. Also noticed from the article he lost his dad on the same day I lost mine, 9-11-08, kind of strange.

This is a very sad event.

It's also pretty sad that the chronicle made no mention of this whatsoever and the only person who was kind enough to tell everybody was texans_chick.

That gets a thumbs down for the chronicle from me :mad:

They posted it on his blog page.

Unbeilevably sad. Last year during free agency I was reading his blog every 10 minutes for updates on signings. I asked as lot of questions, and he always answered. A truely generous man with his time.

He will be missed.
