White dies Sunday morning

Former NFL star Reggie White has died after suffering a massive heart attack Sunday morning at his home near Huntersville, N.C., ESPN's Chris Mortensen has learned.

The former Green Bay Packers and Philadelphia Eagles star turned 43 on Dec. 19.

"Today our beloved husband, father and friend passed away," White's wife, Sara, said through a family pastor. "His family appreciates your thoughts and prayers as we mourn the loss of Reggie White. We want to thank you in advance for honoring our privacy."

Reggie White. A great man. A man of God. A man who loved life and loved every person. I feel like i almost knew the man. It almost feels like a personal loss to me.

A sad day...

I think I speak for everybody in Packer Nation when I say that our thoughts and prayers are with the White family. Although he died young, I'm sure he touched many lives and accomplished more in 43 years than some do in twice that time...

terrible terrible day. not only did reggie white die, but a Vanderbilt University football player was gunned down this morning. dying in your sleep is bad enough, but to be violently killed like that is just horrible. why do these terrible things to each other? it makes me wonder how good we are really doing as as a society and as individual people. Reggie White was not only a football player but also a minister who often preached about love and acceptance for each other. lets all take a lesson from Reggie, lets try to be the best people we can
