Tad, sorry to read about your uncles passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Memories of riding around with Mike in his white Dodge pick up(back in the 80’s). He might have been in his knit shirt and tennis shorts or fairly likely to be In a suit with his bow tie on, looking dapper.....
*Grass growing in the front floor board and on and around the door frame....😬
Regardless of his attire, it was always interesting and a great time to be hanging out with him after a game of tennis or working with him in the yard. Missing those old days with an old friend. Enjoy your eternal life and all the crossword puzzles you could ever imagine. Jeff
