    Headed out to Ellwood City, PA. in the A.M. Going to bury my buddy Big Mike. I was Mike's best man, as he was mine. Big Mike is my first daughter's Godfather and I am his daughters as well. Our crew was crazy as youngsters through the 80's in NYC and we had a lot of fun being so. Mike however, kept on playing hard even after we split up our crew when we all got married in the early 90's. I'm not going to go into details, but he had a short time of suffering. I now head out to bury him. Just do me a favor and say a little prayer for his soul.

    Me and Mike in the Bronx, a few years ago...

    Prayers for you, his family, and him. And for a safe and meaningful journey.

    Ellwood City isn't too far from our family farm which is near Prospect just east of Portersville.

    A friendship described in the OP deserves nothing less than celebration. Few men I know have friends that close for so long.
