Here are some comments made by Tony Dungy, the coach of the Indianapolis Colts football team, at his son's funeral. As some of you may know, Tony's 18-year-old son James died of an apparent suicide on December 22, 2005.

“I want to urge you to continue being who you are because our young boys in this country, they need to hear from you. If anything, be bolder in who you are. Because our boys are getting a lot of the wrong messages about what it means to be a man in this world. About how you should act, and how you should talk and how you should treat people. They don’t always get the right message, but you guys have the right messages.”

Tony added: “Parents, hug your kids every chance you get. Tell them you love them every chance you get because you don’t know when it’s going to be the last time.”
