    My condolences to the family of Mike.   I ran track with Mike back in High School and East High.   Mike,  we still have records up there at East High.  I remembered when we ran at Drake Relays and we  broke the record in the medley relay. That record stood for quite awhile.     I did get a chance to speak with him a couple years ago and we talked about old times.  He was always a good man at heart.  I wanted his family to know how good of a team mate he was!   He will always be remembered and he is etched in history at East,  as being one of the fastest relay members and sprinter at the HS he loved.  I love you Mike, and miss you.  I know you are in a better place and know,  that you are loved.


    Peace always!


    Tracy V. Culpepper Class of 80.
