They'll be red with white text and look similar to John's favorite "This is your brain *Chiefs helmet*, this is your brain on drugs *Raiders helmet*" t-shirt. It will also have "R.I.P John "HG" Wilson" and "1961 - 2020" on the back.

My cost will be around $13-$16 each depending upon the size. Many of us will try to attend the Raiders game this year, but I could also mail them to anyone that wants one. Let me know if you're interested and what size. I'll probably just shoulder all the cost unless the demand is more than I'm expecting.

Sign me up for one of these shirts.  I will reimburse you the cost of the shirt and the shipping.  Just PM me whenever you are able.

Not a problem, once I get your size I think I'll be ready to order all of them.

I miss my Best Friend HG. This column I wrote was in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette on Aug. 1. I miss my Best Friend.

That was beautiful, David. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks for sharing that.  It was really lovely.

UPDATE: The shirts are completed and I should be receiving them later today.

If you have not given me your address yet, please direct message me it. You can pay after I know the total with shipping, but each shirt is $15 which is almost exactly my cost. If you are going through a rough time don't worry about it, I'll send you the shirt(s) for free, no big deal. CC, another friend, and I will be splitting the bill for Rosie and the rest of John's family, so thank you to them.

I know the Raiders game is just 10 days away so I'll try to send these as quickly as possible, but understand I'm literally closing on a house and moving in today after work (most of my furniture is already at the new place, but I've got about a bachelor's pad worth of stuff still to go), so I'm an in demand man at the moment.

Rest in peace to our great friend and Go CHIEFS!!!

This saddens me to no end. I haven’t been here in awhile, no reason, just life goes many different ways. When I saw the title ‘HG memorial Chiefs Talk’, my heart sunk. HG was the heart and soul of this place and was always so grounded. I got the real honor in meeting him once when I worked at Arrowhead and he was invited on the field to hold the big American flag. Glad I got to talk to him. All those years suffering through Chiefs seasons where we thought we’d never see them in the Super Bowl, I’m glad he got to enjoy the sweet victory last year and I know he’ll be watching again this year.

Oh man, I haven’t been here in ages, that’s really sad to hear he passed!
