    Wow, what a terribly sad ending, just way too young. May God rest his soul and comfort his family and friends. Life is fragile and fleeting, enjoy every day!

    So sorry to hear this. I have nothing but respect for him. He did not back down to the mighty Gators, he said he would stop them. And boy did he try. Geno and Tim had good rivalry, I was at that game in the swamp, yes Tim got the better of him but Geno did not back down. God rest his soul, and prayers to his family.

    Death comes like a thief in the night. Is shocking when it hits young or relatively young people. What it tells us is to live a good life and be the best person we can be because you never know when your time will be up. Sounds like Geno did his best. RIP

    I was hoping he had time. Apparently by the time we heard about it the end was near.

    What a crying shame. Man...thought he had more time too. God Bless Geno and the family.

    My brother in law had that kidney problem- hospice happened, he was gone in a week. We all were holding him when he passed. The girls were singing amazing grace. We were up in Navarre.

    Poor guy, the poor family. Sad day for us all. It's heartwarming to see the outpouring of decency. I felt that way when Keyonte went down too. FSU guys were right in the moment too. Rivalries are fun and crazy. But it's touches me when I see folks care. Particularly these days when polarization seems to be the norm. God Bless the Gators. Blessings to Nole families and fans on their loss.

    Go Gators

    I read last week he was admitted into a hospice due to liver disease while awaiting a transplant. I remember he received a pretty rude awakening when he called out Tebow but he was a great player, and seemingly an even better person. Prayers for his family and young children as well.
