I buried my mother yesterday...

I would request the prayers of all my Dawgnation friends that are believers.

It is times like this that make my beloved Dawgs losing a ball game seem very unimportant and certainly puts things in perspective.

Just a thought for you all to take or leave. It's just a football game played by young guys I don't know and don't know me. I've seen hundreds, will see hundreds more, we will win some, we will lose some. But make sure you know what really is important in this fleeting thing we call life. Your loved ones are here with you today. They may be laying in a casket tomorrow. Never take them for granted...live and savor each day and show them your love for them like it's your last day to have a chance to do it. Know what truly is important in life.

There's your sermon for today from Dr. Cochran (yeah, I really am a doctor and pastor of a church...lol) Prayers desired from you...and thanks in advance....carry on....

    Heartfelt thoughts and prayers to you for this message.

    Perspective is just so important in this life. Georgia football occupies a big spot in all our lives. If it did not, we wouldn't be here.

    But if your Momma doesn't dwarf the "DawgNation" piece of your life, I'd want to say a prayer for you, too.

    God bless you @DCochran and your entire family circle. I hope they draw strength and find peace from the things which truly matter in this life during this difficult time.

    Good post...all this peripheral stuff is vapor. What matters are our loved ones, the time we have to spend with them and the memories that will remain forever. I'm sorry for your loss. I've been there. God bless you and may you find comfort in His love especially in these times.

    Prayers for you and your family. It hurts to lose a loved one.

    Go, Dawgs!

    May God bring comfort and encouragement for you and your family during this time.

    I hate to hear it. My Mom passed in 2011, Dad had passed 3 years prior to that. The thing I hadn't considered till Mom passed is the loss of my home compass, there is no home base for their children now, nowhere to go to get in touch with our beginnings.

    It gets easier as time passes though.

    Prayers for you, @DCochran. May you find God’s comfort and peace in this time.

    May God Bless You
