I want to take time out from blathering on and on about our trip to Oregon, good as it was. While there an Alabama Ex notified me via email that John Stallings, son of football coach Gene Stallings, had passed away. Gene Stallings was head football coach at Texas A&M while I was growing up in Bryan, Texas and my family was good friends with their family. His older daughter, Annalee, was a good friend of mine. They were/are a truly exceptional family and I believe that's what sustained John far beyond what was expected of him by others. If you would like to read more about this remarkable, inspiring man and his family you can go to: http://www.tennessean.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080805/COLUMNIST0201/808050344/1002/SPORTS My prayers go out to the Stallings family of sorrow, happiness, hopefulness, and inspiration.
