Hi Mr. Fetzer, David and family. It's your old neighbor and friend Mike Macey. I am so sorry for the loss if your wife and mother. I have so many wonderful memories of your mom and family. I'm in Virginia and feel bad that I lost touch with you guys. My mom said she saw you this morning to offer condolences from our family. I am so sorry, but will add that she was an amazing person and the tribute video captured that nicely. From your friend, neighbor, and former employee...Mike.
