Dear Mike-

I just learned of your Dad's passing. I wanted to let you know you're in my thoughts. Back in the "NOPAC Days" I recall coming over to your parents home or occasionally when your Dad would come to the station...I thought he was the coolest guy on the planet. I'm sending you a big hug buddy & I'm so sorry for your loss.
