She admitted that before he passed away, he told her, “Don’t forget to enjoy the game. Don’t be scared to be in the ring, and don’t forget to enjoy every moment — to live every moment.” To help her with the dive, she asked for the help of the Golden Knights. They are the Army’s parachute team and George used them to jump when he went skydiving.
