    That was "very touching" Kathleen Marshall of Cottonwood Heights, when you said: (and I quote), "My husband was an usher at Energy Solutions Arena. When Jerry Sloan found out that my husband was dying of cancer, yet still insisted on going into work at every Jazz home game, Jerry took it upon himself to get all the coaches, along with Deron Williams, together for an autographed picture, which he framed and presented to my husband. My husband treasured this picture, and showed it to everyone who came to visit him as he spent his last days in his hospital bed. I felt like I needed to add one more story to Jerry Sloan's legend, so others could see the kind person he is underneath his often stern demeanor". (end quote.)

    My sincere condolences on the loss of your husband.

    Side not here. With all the trillon of $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ put into all these research for cancer project's, for the past 40 years or longer, they should of found a million cures for people by now one would think, not just for white mice and lab rats only, I to know of close people to me that also had cancer.
