Cliff Newman emailed me yesterday and said prognosis does not look good. Hospital probably won't accept gifts or flowers due to his condition and being in the ICU. He will keep everyone posted on the SFA website.

I'm sure heartfelt words will be spoken at 1/18 today. I'll be there.

Prayers out for SGM Tabata.

I just heard as well. Sad day. He impacted so many, his contribution really cannot be measured. He was a humble man, a leader, mentor and someone I was privileged to call friend. RIP Ernie. DOL.

May you rest in eternal peace and honor Mr. Tabata. It was an honor to have been your student however short that time was.
