Heart of BBN: Remembering Mom

Story by Big Blue Nation.

“I lost my mom 3 years ago. She was from Middlesboro, KY and she was a huge UK fan growing up during the Rupp and Bear Bryant era. She loved the Cats and wore an old school UK charm bracelet my entire life. Since I was an only child and never met my father, she was solely responsible for bringing me up as a passionate Wildcat fan.

I have 4 children of my own now, and I fondly remember my mom singing them to sleep when they were babies. What did she sing them? The UK fight song and My Old Kentucky Home.

Thanks for everything, Mom. We love you and miss you. “

I ran into my UK Sigma Chi fraternity brother Richard Marrs and his sons at the Alumni Charity game on Aug. 24, 2017 at Rupp Arena and snapped this picture. He was gracious enough to share his story with me. Please share yours with BBN by emailing me at heartofbbn@gmail.com or contacting me through this site.
