Chris Wesseling, a longtime NFLcom writer and podcast host, died Friday aged 46

“Linc won the best Guardian Angel Chris passed away peacefully yesterday afternoon I was by his side holding his hand Knowing that he is no longer suffering brings me some comfort, but my heart hurts so much to the hospital because I thought he would be admitted for a few days like before without knowing he would be home for the last time. His cancer had spread to his lungs and other areas. I just don’t get it. I’m stuck in a place between denial and anger. Why take such a kind, loving soul? Why? Chris made an eternal impression on everyone he met, even in his last days A nurse gave me a letter to give to Linc the day after I was admitted to Chris I read it last night and it’s one of the nicest letters ever random person who wanted Linc to know what kind of man his father came from a complete stranger I know Chris in heaven looks down on us I’ll do my best to raise Linc how I know he will want it I would see Chris every time I look at Linc’s face. I’m so grateful that I can keep part of him with me “
