Fan's wake planned around Kansas game
MAR 29, 2013 1:48p ET
This more or less describes the sentiments of the family of Don Shoulberg, a University of Kansas graduate who died Tuesday in Lawrence, Kan. His obituary in the Lawrence Journal-World was pretty standard stuff, except for the visitation arrangements.
"A Prayer Service will be at 5 p.m. Friday, March 29, 2013 at the mortuary followed by a visitation until tipoff time for the K.U. basketball game (approx. 6:30 p.m.)," it read.
No. 1 seed Kansas plays No. 4 seed Michigan tonight in the Sweet 16, in Arlington, Texas.
Shoulberg earned a Ph.D in speech communication and human relations from KU in 1981 and most recently held a private counseling practice in Lawrence, home of the University of Kansas.
