Guten tag aus (Schweiz) Switzerland,

Never had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Streeter, however I was basketball friends with his relatives Derek & the older brother, not to mention I lived circa 4 houses down from Mr. Streeter on Escalona Avenue. I now reside in Switzerland, nevertheless I remember the sadness & shock at the time.
