I am truly sorry that Mike has passed away. В I taught him at Baker High School in the 60s. В He was a fine person and student and we developed a close friendship. В He helped me so many times doing plays at BHS and at the Springer Theatre working back stage and helping me gather props and scenery. В В I'm sorry to see that Gary has passed as well. В I wish I had kept better contact with them both, but I have many pleasant memories to remember them by, especially Mike.
Six of us started the fishing club and later others were added. Four (4) of the fist timers are waiting on the boat for the others to show up and see how many fish they can catch, how much they can eat and yes, drink. (I always had a 2 bottle limit and was designated the driver. I was always the person who separated the fish into individual piles. I was trusted to be fair or I was the only one willing to pick up dead fish. Someone had to be that person.) Those fishing trips were always looked forward to. We had a banker, Charles Kennedy, who collected money every payday so we would be ready to go.
We are all looking forward to making that final trip to meet The Great Fisherman of men so we are storing up blessings for that day.
Our prayers are with you Debbie and the family as you celebrate Mike's Homecoming and grieve at his death. May God give you peace and comfort at this difficult time.
