So sorry for your loss. Mike & I were good friends in early grade school. We were play mates going to each other's home. I'm happy to have known him. We lost touch and I dd not know he was in the US Air force. Bless you my brother for your service and may peace that passes all understanding be with your wife, daughters and grandchildren. In Christ, we will all meet again!
