Lacey Holsworth, the little blonde girl who famously became friends with Michigan State basketball star Adreian Payne while battling cancer, died earlier this week.
The story has resonated nationally and even internationally.
Michigan State students held a vigil in her honor. Predictably, Spartans coach Tom Izzo showed up after talking with Lacey's parents, and he spoke to the students for eight minutes. If you haven't watched the video yet, you should. Izzo was emotional, funny and generally terrific. So grab some tissue, then hit the play button.
