A year ago today, a teacher, a humanitarian, a father, a grandfather, a husband, a football coach and so much more passed away. He was a great man, but not a god. He had his flaws and faults, to what extent, we may never truly know, but to say he didn't touch thousands of lives in a positive way would be a lie.
