    Mick and I go back a ways as Marine buddies. His wonderful wife Luann and son Sean have so much to be proud of. What we did in the Marine Corps? Easiest said as "The best time we ever had with our clothes on. What a ride..." Mick will be missed. My very best to Luann and Sean. Semper Fi Mick. Save Marty, Mike and I a place. Dave Fry
