Thanks. The outpouring from sailors I don't even know has been remarkable. About 400 people showed up at Spike's wake.

Tonight there is a fund raiser for his scholarship fund starting at 7pm at the Conor Bryne pub in Ballard. I'll be there.

Saturday morning at 8am I got a phone call from Ron Holland in Ireland. Ron and I are the same age. Ron has four daughters.

It all doesn't help very much but it helps a little and that's good.
