Editor’s note: On Aug. 22, 2017, Utah Jazz forward Jae Crowder lost his mother, Helen Thompson, to cancer on the same night he learned he was being traded from Boston to Cleveland. The pain of losing her still affects him. He hopes that by sharing his grief, it can help others cope with personal tragedy. The following letter was composed by Deseret News sports writer Eric Woodyard from an interview with Crowder. Jae Crowder: Dear Momma, Being loved. Having the feeling of doing no wrong in your eyes. Someone I can talk to no matter what and just feeling an unconditional love that I will likely never get again. This is what I think about when I think of you. It’s still tough for me to get into the day you left. I’d rather not go there.
Jae Crowder: August 22, 2017, is still the worst day of my life as I watched you take your last breath, but I miss you and have been trying my best to keep it together for you and our family. It gets hard, and I want you to know I will never give up trying to fill your spot as head of our family. I know, 100 percent, in my heart that you would want me to be doing this, playing basketball, and you would be supporting me. So, for the rest of my career, I definitely play for you. I can still hear your voice, telling me, ‘Son, just play hard and have fun with it.’ That’s why each time I enter a game, I honor the Lord first then you of course with a bump on my chest then a glimpse to the sky.
