Remembering Tommy Sypula

Posted Saturday, November 20, 2010 by Ed Dalton
When I heard that Tommy Sypula died suddenly many thoughts flooded my mind about the twenty-seven year old former Washington athlete.  First how tragic it was for a young person with so much potential to be gone before his time.  But mostly what a competitive and tough football player Tommy was at Washington.  He was always kind of in the middle of everything, but make no mistake on that state championship team, he was the heart of the attitude of that team.  His toughness kind of became the attitude of that entire group.  I don't know why things happen, but my last conversation with Tommy was a good one, and thats the way I choose to remember that young man.  My deepest sympathy goes out to his parents, and all of his family. God Bless them, and guide them through this terrible loss.

Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep. I am in a thousand winds that blow, I am the softly falling snow. I am the gentle showers of rain, I am the fields of ripening grain. I am in the morning hush, I am in the graceful rush Of beautiful birds in circling flight, I am the starshine of the night. I am in the flowers that bloom, I am in a quiet room. I am in the birds that sing, I am in each lovely thing. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there. I do not die.
