Wow! This is crazy! Hard to believe it can come outta nowhere.
EDMOND, Okla. — So far this flu season 17 Oklahomans have died of flu-related illness.
One Edmond family lost their 13-year-old son on the very same day he was diagnosed with influenza.
Riley Andrews, 13, had been under the weather for weeks.
He had a low-grade fever and felt crummy, according to his mom, Tami Andrews.
On Dec. 26, 2012, Tami Andrews finally insisted that Riley go see a family physician to figure out what was wrong.
Riley Andrews was a special kid; a talented artist and a skilled athlete.
He played catcher and second base on a team his father coached.
He loved the guitar.
Riley wanted more than anything to play college baseball for the OSU Cowboys.
The Andrews are a big blended family with five sons between them.
Tami has two sons and Frank has two sons; Riley was their only child together.
