All of the sudden my mind wanted to surfed the web to look for my special friends from my youth. Mike, and his wife were my best friends in Albuquerque New Mexico. I always think about them. Today, 25 October 2017 I was able to find this site and to my surprised my friend Mike was taken to heaven. I am so sorry. God be with his family. Thank you for your service. You are a hero in my book.
