I have just found out some shocking, tragic news that happened earlier this week. I did a search in the forums, but found nothing, so I want to let you all know.

Tommy John lost his youngest son Talyor this past month. He was 28 years old and had apparently battled bi-polar disorder for many years. He was a noted singer in his church and had performed on Broadway as a child.

My brother found this out by accident after googling Tommy John. I'm surprised I didn't see it myself. I am sorry if this has been posted already, but I did a search and did not see it, as I said.

Here's a link to Tommy John's official website announcing the news: http://www.tommyjohn.net/

Mods, please move if this isn't the correct forum.

Sad, 28 is so young. My prayers to his family.
