I did not write this., but thought it would be nice to show my respects for Sean Taylor. Sad to see someone this talented and young die, but I know God will get glory from this tragedy.
It’s a sad day for NFL fans…
Early Tuesday morning Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor died, a day after he was shot at home by what police say was an intruder. He was 24.
Family friend Richard Sharpstein said Taylor’s father told him the news around 5:30 a.m.
“His father called and said he was with Christ and he cried and thanked me,” said Sharpstein, Taylor’s former lawyer. “It’s a tremendously sad and unnecessary event. He was a wonderful, humble, talented young man, and had a huge life in front of him. Obviously God had other plans.” He said Taylor died early Tuesday at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, where he had been airlifted after the shooting early Monday.
Sharpstein said Taylor’s girlfriend told him the couple was awakened by loud noises, and Taylor grabbed a machete he keeps in the bedroom for protection. Someone then broke through the bedroom door and fired two shots, one missing and one hitting Taylor, Sharpstein said. Taylor’s 1-year-old daughter, Jackie, was also in the house, but neither she nor Taylor’s girlfriend were injured.
Taylor was a great up-and-coming NFL safety. Take a minute and pray for the Taylor family.
So please just repost as “in loving memory of Sean Taylor.”
