    Gore's mother passes

    Great...that is all we need, Gore coming into the game with a chip on his shoulder. Although...very sad news. Sorry to hear it.


    From The Press Democrat:

    -Our deepest condolences go out to Frank Gore, whose mother, Liz, passed away yesterday. Liz has been battling kidney disease. She has been on dialysis since Gore was a junior in high school.

    Gore was at the *****' practice facility this morning, but he left to spend time with some family members who were visiting him. Liz passed away yesterday at around 5 p.m., Pacific time, ***** coach Mike Nolan said.

    "He's in town at his place," Nolan said. "He has some family with him who were here prior to finding out about his mother's passing."

    Gore was extremely close to his mother, who raised three kids as a single mother in the rough Coconut Grove section of Miami.

    "Frank saw his mom a couple weeks ago," Nolan said. "It was important that he saw her at that time. He felt if he didn't get a chance to see his mother before the season that he may not get a chance to see her again.

    "I think that Frank feels that his mother would want him to do his job. Frank knows that. I think that's where he'll put his attention when it comes to Sunday's game. I'm sure it's hard for him to get focused with what happened."

    Gore plans to play Sunday in St. Louis. Then, he is expected to travel to Miami for his mother's memorial service.

    Best wishes to Gore and his family right now. I'm surprised he was at practice this morning, to be honest.

    Always a tragic time when one has to bury a parent. May she rest in peace. May he find peace.

    He will travel with the team, play on Sunday then fly home to Coral Gables to make the funereal arrangements for his mother.
