Yesterday also marked a somber day for the broadcasting community, and Reno as a whole -- as we said goodbye to fellow broadcaster JK Metzker.
"To Tommy, Tanner and Luke: you may feel that you've lost your daddy. But know that he will be with you in everything you do, everything you feel, everything you are and everything you will be. And also know that every single one of his friends will be there for you however you may need us."
JK leaves behind three young boys, and his wife Jamie -- his childhood sweetheart.
Friday afternoon, funeral services were held at our lady of the snows in downtown reno. The same church where JK and Jamie got married back in 1998.
JK was known for being a prankster, with a great wit and a friendly competitor who so many in the community considered a friend.
To his family, and friends, our thoughts are with you.
