Mike, you've been on the Natíonal Wall, bút they finally honored you on the Georgia wall as a line of duty death. The blood clot that killed you came from an injury you received in that class. I wish yóu had stayed home that day since you were in pain. You were too dedicated to miss a day. I miss you brother!
