Remembering the 2001 OSU Plane Crash
The Ten were remembered in a halftime memorial at last night's game against Texas. In fitting tribute to the Ten, for the first time ever in Cowboy basketball history, OSU retired a basketball jersey - the No. 10.
Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free;
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took His hand when I heard Him call;
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day,
to laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way;
I found that peace at the close of the day.
If my parting has left a void,
then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
oh yes, these things I too, will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow;
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I've savored much;
good friends, good times, a loved one's touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief;
don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me;
God wanted me now, He set me free.
