FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) Patriots running back James White says he is having trouble processing the sudden death of his father, but is finding comfort in celebrating his son's first birthday.
In an Instagram message Tuesday, White posted side by side photos of himself as a child sitting on the lap of his father, Tyrone, and another of White holding his 1-year-old son, Xzavier.
"Happy 1st birthday Xzavier! I hope I can be as good of a father to you as my father was to my brother and I!" White wrote. "I still can't quite process everything that's going on right now but when I look at you, you give me life! May you Rest In Peace, Dad. We miss you much already."
