    My sincere condolences and prayers go out to Michael’s family. I didn’t actually know him, but graduated from Colfax High School with his mother in 1956. At the time he was born, his father and I both ate in the same little diner at noon, and he was so proud of his son, calling him “Sputnik” after the space ship that was in the news at the time. Such a short life, but may you treasure the good memories.
