At a loss for words right now💔 Absolutely devastated. You made your mom proud!✊ Sometimes the “family on 3” chant sounds repetitive, but it’s real and the whole state/country feels it today. Please pray for the Jordan family, it’s been a tough year for them. Love you Ty #LLTJ pic.twitter.com/lcAknvR42x

Most will see the player we see the person a team is a family. For some it’s about W’s and L’s. Stars and rankings for us it’s about people and making a difference. Today we lost one to the game of life and it hurts. We can make a difference . Don’t observe DO pic.twitter.com/f7vkOsvxEX
