My heart goes out to the 3 men (Marquis Cooper, Corey Smith and William Bleakley) lost at sea off Florida’s west coast. I have been praying since I learned of their situation over the weekend, and I can’t imagine what their families must be going through…such a sudden, tragic and heartbreaking situation.
I particularly feel more connected to the story because I knew Marquis through mutual friends and I worked with his Dad, Bruce, in the sports department at KPNX in Phoenix, where we also hosted, Friday Night Fever (high school football show) together. He always spoke so highly of his only son and was the ever-proud father, even donning Marquis’ Tampa Bay jersey for one of our shows. I remain hopeful and will continue to pray and keep them all in my thoughts and prayers.
