Dorothy and Mike,
Bob, Bill and Mike were like the brothers I never had.
Bill always was quick to laugh and his laugh was infectious to those around him.
When I was a kid, I always looked forward to going to their house as I knew it was going to be fun even though they were years older.
They all treated me like a little brother, kidding me as older brothers would.
I hadn't seen Bill in person for a few years but we'd periodically catch up on the phone. I could tell his health was failing when we'd talk.
I am so deeply sorry.
Dennis Cassidy and family.

I have many memories of Mike's dad. From the Ben Gay Bunch softball team at St. David's to the Saturday morning bowling razzing with him and Mr. Knese (who just passed away in December). And the over the fence discussions with Mr. Nichols and Mo Austerman. It was his sense of humor and that curly hair that always made me smile. Mike and Dot my heart feels for you.
