    I planned to read this poem at Tao’s funeral service, but didn’t get the chance due to limited time. I like to post it here for sharing with Tao’s family and all others.

    I got to know Tao when I joined Goodyear about 10 years ago. At that time, I had just graduated from school and had never worked in the states before. It was the Chinese group at Goodyear that helped me make this new environment more like home. I still...  more

    From Dengke Yang: 我們的好朋友和好球友宋弢永遠離開了,對於宋弢的英年早逝,我感覺非常的心痛。
    大家最有同感的事就是宋弢在球場上表現,他每場球都盡自己的最大努力,他的防守最好,從不偷懶,進攻時,總是首先把球傳給隊友,總是鼓勵隊友,而不是埋怨。宋弢的球打得好,但不是球霸,從不故意傷人。從這些我們看到他的高上人品。
    虽然宋弢远离我们而去,但我们会永远怀念他。

    Even it's been a while, I still remember how hard Tao played soccer, a sport connected us 7000 miles away after we graduated from the same college and went on chasing our dreams... RIP!!!

    I got to know Tao around 2005 on basketball court. Since then we'd played the ball game almost every week for the next 14 years until this unfortunate incident happened. There're a lot of great memories of him, on and off the court. That's also how I got...  more

    With my sympathy to Tao’s family here and far away in China.
    Tao Song was outstanding, strong and funny in many ways. From work, such as tire noise and uniformity, to sports, such as soccer, he played well and played seriously. Chatting with him...  more

    I always loved going to your house as a kid because your dad would say "Kevin!" and "Steven!" in a loud, silly voice. It was so fun when he played basketball with us, and I will really miss him
