"The father of Ridge Barden spoke with NewsChannel 9, remembering the varsity player who passed away after suffering head injuries during a Friday night football game. Saturday morning, he issued this statement: 'I have no words right now, my world has been devastated. But I want to say thank you to all of you that have written me and are sending your prayers to me. October 14th will go down as the worst day of my life. I don't know what I'm going to do without you Ridge, I love you so much, and cannot even grasp that you are not here.'" [9WSYR; The Post-Standard] (H/T Jared)
