Ryan, Jeff, I just learned today of your Dads passing from my doctor. It's been a few months since I talked with him, I am so sorry I didn't call him more I knew he tried so hard to talk and sometimes difficult to understand him which broke my heart. He was the best friend Mike had and was so good to me after he passed. No one helped me through that more than Gene, I told everyone he was my big brother, and he was like a brother and such a generous person and trusted friend. I send you both my heart felt condolences. He was loved and will be truly missed.
