    Grandpas Death
    This was a tough time in my life becasue my Grandpa was a huge role model in my life, and was always there for me, and we shared so many great memories togethr so it was hard to tell myself that he was gone, but I know whenecer I need help he will always be ther no matter what. I am glad it was a planned death due to his cancer and was not sudden, so we were able to have all the family home, even family from Guam. This made me a stronger person then I was.

    I was very shocked to hear that Iowa wide receiver Derrel Johnson-Koulianos was arrested with living in a known drug house.
