Just wanted to note the passing of a buddy and former teammate of mine, Larry 'Spike" Mellinger. That's him on the far left in the pic.

I hadn't seen him since Nam and finally met him — and his family — in KC at our 40th reunion. Spike was kinda' ill at the time, but recalled some really wild stories about us that I — thankfully — don't remember ... but Larry did.

Anyway .. after a long fight, Larry passed away last night.

My prayers go with him ... and with his wife Joanne and the family.

See ya' in the not-too-distant future, man.
