To Mike and family, I was reading paper at work and came across your moms obituary. I’m so sorry for your loss. It seems like these things hit home a little more as we age. At times I think of the good times we had back in the day and often would just like to say hi . So glad I found a contact for you however I wish it wasn’t under these circumstances. Well once again I offer my condolences to you and your family and as I always say I will never forget any of my former teammates because those times were a big part of my life and I wish at times I could see all again
