Condolences to Wade Redden and Family
posted Apr 23, 2006 at 02:24PM
It has been reported that Wade Redden has flown back home due to the passing away of his mother, after battling serious illness. Losing a parent you are close to, is one of those events that blots out everything else that is going on in one's life. It is especially sad in this case as Wade's mother was not that old. In sports, there is always a next year, and a chance to start afresh. Here there is only finality and memory. It is the latter that gets you through this difficult time even as it is the source of one's pain. It looks like there is a large extended family involved, and that will be a great comfort in the coming days.
