David and I are so sorry for your loss, Mae. We have such fond memories of such a great guy! We remember him cleaning at Otsego after basketball games - we were cleaning up the concession stand and he the gym and fun conversations. Then, much later, when we started attending the fish fries in Grand Rapids, being greeted at the door with big smiles and hearty greetings. Always so good to see him. May God's comfort be with you.
