Sympathies message

  1. Keith and Greta,

    Where do I start in talking about what your dad meant to me over these past nearly 37 years. From my time in middle school to now, I have always looked up to and admired him. He stood for what he thought was right, showed us all how to work for what we dreamed, helped us see our way clear and use our skill to overcome obstacles to be successful.

    So many lessons, were taught and worked out on the basketball court. From acquiring fundamentals and being well conditioned, to playing with precision at game speed, to strategizing tactics to protect possession and working as a team to score goals, we learned how to be successful both mentally and physically..

    From your Dad I was learning how not panicking gave you a chance to get out of a bad situations and how if you set your mind to it, you can have confidence and patience you can work your way out of bad situations. I also had a role model to show me that when your in a situation with deep intensity and large personal investment, no matter what the outcome (win or lose) you can muster the courage and composure to be classy and act with dignity.

    Being a Lady Bronco, working and learning from your dad, along with lessons I learned from my parents and others in our community helped me experience many good times humbly and fight through other bad times with dignity.

    Your dad helped me develop the skill and knowledge for the game which led to a full scholarship through college. He came to some of those games when he could and I was so proud to have him there. Ideas from working with him led to many successes in my college career and life. Some of these ideas include themes like “Perfect Practice makes perfect” and simple truths such as when you work hard and don’t cut corners, sticking with the fundamentals, you can achieve your goals. Even then, he gave me a few tips that afforded me and edge over the other teams and helped me enhance or sharpen my skill.

    After college and over the last 26 through continued association with your dad, I benefited from a real friend. He was a person that just being around made you better. For example, the handful of times I played golf with him and his family and friends in Oklahoma and Nevada, him, my golf game was better. In staying in contact with him I was able to keep tabs on how my friends, teammates and teams were doing. When Joe and I would get together with he and Mona, after finding out about how you were doing, we’d always talk basketball when we got together. In this busy, and sometimes chaotic world, this helped me stay connected to Mustang, to Oklahoma and to basketball, really.

    I’ve cherished the time spent with he and Mona Rae especially this last year. I could see and hear the deep devotion and commitment they had to each other. I pray that you and Greta are comforted by the players, friends family, and community throughout this week and always. I’m convinced our good Lord will continue to bless you both, Mona Rae and him.

    As you can see I feel fortunate to have met, learned from, and been a friend to your dad. Keith I appreciate all that you and Mona Rae sacrificed in time and talent in sharing your dad with me and us. He was a great man.

    God Bless you,

    Cindy
