It’s with a heavy heart that we break news that San Francisco 49ers WR Jerry Rice’s mother, Eddie B. Rice passed away this morning on Christmas Day in a hospital in Jackson, Mississippi. (tribute video below)
Our thoughts and prayers are with Jerry Rice and his family during this difficult time.
Rice’s daughter wrote the following to her grandma:
“Love you granny. Heaven gained an angel today. My grandma loves Jesus so much that she passed on the day we celebrate his birth. 🙂 Missing her so much but know that she’s in a better place and no longer suffering.”
Above is a tribute video to Jerry’s mother as she raised a great man and an even better person. This tragic event serves as a reminder to always cherish and keep in touch with those that we love not only during the holiday season but even during the busiest moments of our lives. May you and your families have a safe and blessed holiday season. Rest in peace, Eddie B. Rice! You will be missed!
