God continue to bless you Mike and thank you for protecting your wife and children to the bitter, bloody end. I know you have watched over them and continue to watch over their beautiful children now as well. I never heard my father weep until the morning he phoned me with the unbelievable news of your murder...he is with you now and no doubt still you two are still having your friendly arguments..your story and your truth continues..we have had the luxury of getting old thanks to you, and you remain forever 29..and forever in our hearts.
