Horrible news, just horrible. Hawain it is tough to outlive your children. My parents lost two of their sons, one to birth defects and one to cancer. They have never gotten over it.

Members of the football world gathered in Broomall, Pennsylvania on Tuesday for the funeral of Garrett Reid, the eldest son of Eagles coach Andy Reid who was found dead in his dorm room at the teamís training camp on Monday morning.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, Patriots coach Bill Belichick, Saints coach Joe Vitt and defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, Browns president Mike Holmgren and Eagles players past and present were among the estimated 900 people that turned out for the service. Ravens coach John Harbaugh, a former assistant under Reid in Philly, spoke to reporters after the service and gave an impression of how Reid is holding up.

ďAndy wrapped me up in a big bear hug and told me everything was going to be all right,Ē Harbaugh said, via Mike Greger of Metro Philadelphia.

Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie also stopped to speak with reporters and addressed the question of when Reid would be back with the team. Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer passes along that Lurie said Reid is free to take as much time as he needs with his family, but that all indications are that Reid will coach the Eagles in their preseason opener against the Steelers on Thursday night.

There may be some who question Reidís timeline for returning to work, whenever he returns to work, but thatís not going to happen here. Weíll merely send our condolences to the Reid family once more on what has to be an incredibly difficult day for them.
