    The children of former Dallas Cowboys player Terry Glenn are speaking out about their father after his death early Monday in a car crash.

    Glenn was driving on Texas 114 when his vehicle struck a concrete barrier near Walnut Hill Lane, causing the vehicle to flip, police said. He later died at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas.

    To the public, Glenn was a football player. But to his children, he was everything.

    "My hero and my dad," said Samantha Glenn, 12.

    "He loved me and told me he was proud of me," added Natalie Glenn, 15.

    Glenn had four children with his ex-wife.

    Natalie Glenn remembers cheering on number 83 from the stands.

    "During the game we'd always sit in the very edge, so when he did a play on defense he would come up and say hi and give us hugs," she said.

    The teen will miss her father's voice in the crowd at her volleyball games.

    "He would always be the loudest person," she said, wiping tears from her eyes.

    [DFW] Domino's Pizza Launches Outdoor Delivery

    Domino's Pizza is tweaking its home delivery service for those times you're not at home.
    After years of delivery right to your doorstep, Domino's drivers will now deliver to outdoor locations.
    That includes beaches, parks, landmarks, and other outdoor locations across the country.
    Domino's says its drivers will deliver to 150-thousand locations from the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, to the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign.
    The locations are now active and show up in the company's app or website as "Domino's Hotspots."
    Customers pre-pay for their orders, select a location, and your pizza is on the way.
    Previously, Domino's delivered to offbeat locations, but, the new service sets up designated drop off points.
    The service was tested last fall in Miami before being rolled out nationwide.

    Glenn's 11-year-old son, Christian, will remember their special outings.

    "He would always take me fishing," he said with a smile.

    The siblings say they will cherish the little moments, away from the limelight.

    "We saw about two movies a week, because we were movie-buddies," Natalie said. "He was a great father. He tried his best in everything. He fought really hard for everything."

    The Glenn children will also remember how much their dad did for other children, specifically foster kids like he was.

    Glenn was active in his 83 Kids Foundation.

    Canadian lawmakers wore hockey jerseys on Monday to honor the victims and their families of that tragic bus crash in Canada that killed 16 people.
    The bus was carrying the junior league Humboldt hockey team to a game when a tractor-trailer slammed into the bus.
    Sixteen were killed and thirteen people were injured in the crash.
    Today's remembrance was one of a number of events that honored the team and their families.
    Earlier the lawmakers honored Rusty Staub, a major leaguer who played for the Montreal Expos and the New York Mets.

    Irving police say they are still investigating what caused the deadly crash.

    Glenn's fiancé was injured in the crash. She was treated at a local hospital and has since been released.
