Wallace's father passes away

It's been a rough time personally for Gerald Wallace, and that might again impact his availability for a game this week.

Gerald lost his grandmother last week, causing him to miss the three-game road trip to Miami, New Orleans and Dallas.

Now I'm told his father has passed away. Services are Wednesday and Thursday in Alabama.

Bobcats spokesman B.J. Evans says Gerald might miss Tuesday's home game against the Chicago Bulls, as a result.

There really are no words that can ease the pain of the passing of a loved one needless to say that 2 times the pain seems truly unbearable. I feel that by remembering the good times, the childhood memories, the holidays, memory of time spent with those who have passed can bring smiles and even laughter to your grieving family. I know that maybe of little consequence right now but time does heal. They will always be with you and your family watching over you and guiding you. God bless you and your family.

That is terrible to lose two of the family so close together. Especially during December.

I know this was the least thing you expected to happen to you, but know that there's someone out there watching over you always, and forever. The lost of a loved one especially during the holiday season is unbearable. What a lost and may God's peace be with you and your family.

Bonnell if you see Gerald and you think it is appropriate, please tell him that fans are thinking of him and praying for his family.

Many of us disagree with each other on this blog, but I think we can all say that we wish the best for Gerald and his family, especially at this time of year.
