“It was a tremendous tragedy that happened to this family and everyone involved,” Jimbo Fisher said. “You know, the great traditions and history of A&M, it’s amazing, this morning there were over 1,000 people at the Bonfire Memorial, which is a tremendous tribute and typical of the A&M family, remembering all the people that passed in that.
