Michael was in my Wm Carr class from Kindergarten thru 6th Grade.  I always felt that Mike didn't get a fair shake from the teachers.  It made me sad.  I caught up with him several years ago.  It was good to have an adult conversation.  I'm so glad he had a wonderful life after school and a faithful family of wife, children, and grands.  I trust Michael is resting in peace. -- Marji Wenos Watkins
