In case you missed the awful news this past weekend, Edmonton Oilers forward Colby Cave passed away after suffering a sudden brain hemorrhage.
The 25 year old forward, who formerly played for the Boston Bruins, was rushed to hospital last week and placed under a medical-induced coma. After an emergency brain surgery to remove a tumour there was hope that Cave might recover. Heartbreakingly though, he passed away on Saturday, April 11th.
Cave leaves behind his wife Emily Cave. The couple had yet to even celebrate their 1st wedding anniversary.
Today, Emily, Colby’s parents and Colby’s body are scheduled to arrive back home in North Battleford, Saskatchewan and when they do they’ll have the support of thousands of residents.
Supporters are expected to line up in their vehicles today in an outpouring of support for Emily and Colby’s family.
RIP, Colby. Gone far, far, FAR too soon.
