  16. Coach Richard, I am saddened that you are battling this disease once again. As you remember I too was battling Breast Cancer at the same time as you in late 2006 early 2007. You were my inspiration because you were so positive, and you looked fabulous the last time I saw you in May of 2007 after Brittany’s graduation from SJSU. Stay strong…GOD has a plan for all of us. Much love to you and Lee. Tia Morris
