Tailing the Komets

Add to your prayer list please

Many of you may have heard of Ryan Christian, the daughter of long-time minor league player Jeff Christian, who was an inspiration to many for her battle against cancer. Her dad played against the Komets in the old IHL, mostly with Cleveland, and two years ago in the CHL with Evansville. Ryan died today at age 10 after fighting the disease for several years. I believe Ryan was also very good friends with Kevin St. Pierre's daughter Abby.

God Bless you, Ryan, and your family.

She is being rewarded now for her sacrifices, God bless.

Wow, so sad. To put it in terms of hockey, the ones that are the best are called up to the big leagues. She must have been too good for the Earth league. She's so lucky to be walking golden streets!

I mean no disrespect by this, but just asking for clarity, was Jeff Christian the guy that knocked Frankie D out with a concussion for a while a few seasons back? Just wondering if my memory serves me correctly.
