Women's Softball Team
« on: February 23, 2014, 07:20:01 pm »

I'm on a plane coming out of Atlanta with the women's softball team and they are all in tears. Has anything happened at the UA? Not comfortable asking one of these ladies if all is well when they are this upset. Thanks in advance.

Hog website says they went undefeated in Ft. Meyers this weekend, so I don't know what all the tears could be about.

Just found out that one of the girls father passed away. She literally found out right before she boarded the plane. Horrible way to find out that you've just lost a loved one. Prayers.

She definitely needs our prayers and thoughts.  Tough, tough thing to go through.  Prayers sent for her and her family.

At any rate, many of us know what it is like to suddenly and unexpectedly lose a close loved one.  Terrible no matter how or when you find out.  Hate that she lost a parent so young, barely out of high school.  :(

Awful timing for the player.  There's never a good time to find out of a loved ones death but at an airport would rank very low.  Sorry for her and happy that she has a strong support team to lean on

Will definetley pray for her and her loved ones left behind.
God says in his book that the Lord will not leave you comfortless, that He will come to you.
I lost my Dad at 24 and it was much too young.
Her teammates and coaches will probably be a great help to her

So sad. My daughter tried out for her HS team last year and didnt make it. She was ready to pack it in and give up on softball. We went to 3 Razorback Softball games the weekend of the spring game. It completely renewed her drive and she got to meet a few of the girls after the games. She practiced with her HS team the whole season last year, without being on it. This year she made the team and has her first game this week. These girls will never know how much they mean to my daughter, and to me for the joy I see that watching them brings her. We got to see "Reggie" play last weekend. She is gonna be some kind of special player. My heart breaks for her. Praying God will wrap His big ol loving arms around her in her time of need....

Time for everyone to tell their parents, if still alive, how much you love them.  Life is short and tragedy strikes at any time in this world of chaos. 

Very sorry for her loss.  I remember a girl my freshman year who unexpectedly lost her father.  Tragic and affected her tremendously.

Truly a sad and tragic story:

Quote
Jessica “Reggie” Harrison, a freshman softball stud at the University of Arkansas and one of my sister’s closest friends, lost her mother to cancer years ago and over the weekend tragically lost her father. As an only child, she had an undeniable bond with her dad. - See more at: http://www.studentsports.com/softball/2014/02/26/tragedy-hits-arkansas-softball/#sthash.lCvLISzM.dpuf/quote]

Well now the poor girl has lost both parents.  I did not know that.

Is anyone else worried about her mental stability right now?  I am.  Folks need to be doing meaningful things for this girl.

I wish I knew or somebody knew how to meaningfully help this poor girl.  Maybe a public group effort to unite behind her?  Come on Hog fans!

I know a little of what this girl is going through.
I lost my mom at 16 and both my parents by 29.
Hopefully, she's got siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins to help her through this.
If not then friends should step in and make her part of their family.
Hope those close to her realize she'll need them 6 months from now almost as much as today. She's lost her home - I know that sounds crazy but that's what it feels like. She's lost a lot of security at a really young age.
I just feel truly horrible for this young girl.

Well this is just awful. I coach softball and I see the bonds that some of these girls have. She'll lean on those ties and persevere, but that doesn't make this suck any less.
God bless you Reggie.

In the article it said, "Immediately, the University of Arkansas’ assistant coach and her changed their flights and headed to Reggie’s home in Houston, Texas." Props to Coach Carpenter for taking care of her.
