Having survived lymphoma twiice, I can tell you that it is hard on the family. Mr. Richardson and his extended family have been through a lot, as has his son.  Winning will not bring anyone back or cure a disease, but it could help the Richardson family deal with the agony by giving them a pleasant escape.

I can't imagine having to bury any of my kids, no matter their age.

 

 

That said, thoughts and prayers with the Richardsons and the extended Panthers family...

I cannot imagine a greater pain than having to bury your own child.  My great grandmother lived to be 100 and outlived all but one of her children.  There was one two month span where she buried three of them (my grandmother included).  She just kept sobbing, "No parent should outlive their children."  It was one of the hardest things to watch in my life and I wasn't even a parent then.

 

God be with the Richardson family through this time.

Thoughts are with the Richardson family. By the way, am I the only panther fan that is offended that NFL Network nor ESPN has even brought it up but any other tragic event (I.e Robert Kraft's wife died, Andy Reid's son overdosed) gets full blown coverage... I think it is kind of a slap in the face to Mr. Richardson considering his position in the league.

Just to be clear Mark Richardson was our former President and Jon had a similar title but was in charge of Stadium Operations.

 

With that said I am very sad to hear this. Jon was always considered the "Blue Collar" Richardson that worked his tail off and preferred jeans to a suit. I am very sad for Mr. Richardson and I hope he can endure.

 

The Panthers have plenty of people that can take care of business with training camp looming. I just hope the Cat gets some time with his family.

Yeah but to be honest Jerry doesn't like making his family public anyways.

Sad day for the franchise. My condolences to the Richardson family.

Hopefully we can do some sort of tribute to him for the upcoming season.

It's sad that a tragedy like this is what it takes to get posts regarding Mr. Richardson that are not full of ridicule or disdain. Granted, many of "us" are not like that, but many more are and as this sinks in we should all remember that all the money in the world doesn't make you any less human and it does not ease the pain when the life of a loved one ends.

I do not personally know Mr. Richardson, but I am truly sorry for his loss. It is a sad day in Panthernation.
