  • Broncos Country has lost an amazing man.

    I wanted to take a moment and share a story with all of you.

    My name is Seth and I am 28 years old. About 8 months ago I was faced with the decision of placing my mother in a nursing home as her Multiple Sclerosis of 25 years had gotten worse. It was a very difficult time in my life, still is, but upon moving my mother into this new community there was an individual who I bonded with immediately.

    He wore a camo Broncos hat and seeing this I knew we immediately had something in common without ever saying a word to each other. I introduced myself using his hat and the Broncos as a way to begin a relationship. His name was James and he was in a wheelchair and him and I immediately hit it off.

    Over the past 8 months as I visited my mother, I would always take a moment to chat with him and talk about things, which would always include our Broncos. We became good friends and he took my wife and daughter in as close friends too.

    He passed this past weekend of a heart attack. I wanted to let everyone know that he was a great Bronco fan and friend. No matter what is happening around you, life's short and always make the best of it. I am blessed that he was wearing his Bronco hat that day, as he always did, and opened the door to a great friendship.

    Here is a Mile High Salute to James.:salute!:
    God bless.

      RIP James.

      Great story. I work at a nursing home, and many people get the wrong idea about places like those.

      They are great places. LOTS of great people with wonderful things to share and talk about.

      Some of those residents (I don't even see them as residents anymore), are almost as close to me as my grandparents are.

      Sorry for your loss again, but he'll be smiling down every year Denver takes the field... I'm sure of it.

      :salute!:

              I think Ben Tate will be the best back taken in the 2010 draft. (5/3/10)

                          R.I.P. James.

                          That's a great story Seth and I appreciate that you shared it with us. I think it goes without saying as well that people should appreciate what you did for James, because I know from experience how often the elderly are forgotten in our society, and I know so many that would thank God every day to have a stranger befriend them, even if it was only every once in a while that they came in and chatted.

                          That was a great thing for you to do and I commend you for it as well.
