Your namesake Michael has grown into a wonderful young man, and I know you are very proud of him. I still miss you so much and think of you often. It is nice to think that you were there for Mom and Dad when they crossed over.

Love always, Jean

Hello Mike,

It has been a long time since we were together. You are one of those people who is admired by many and forgotten by none. I will never forget those blue eyes, wavy hair, and your smile. I don't recall any time that you were in a bad mood. You were always enthusiastic and curious to know all you could and good company to me and Spulecki.

Spulecki and I met some of your family at the DFW airport about 5years ago. Nice people. I wish them the peace they deserve. I feel badly for them because I know they still miss you immensely. I am sorry that you were not able to come home like you should have.

I will not forget you, Mike. I know I will see you again someday and maybe we can have a lot more fun then.

One of your friends,
Joseph Edward Calhoun
