    So sorry to hear this. I remember Laura, Mickey, David, and Dr. McClure. Mickey and David used to hang out at the Holiday Park pool and we had a lot of fun playing tag and running around. And when I was in Watkins Hospital at KU, it was either Mickey or David working there part time who came into my room and was so kind to me.

    Mickey was a great guy and friend. We always felt a special kinship since our mothers were at Lawrence Memorial together and we were born just hours apart. From 6th grade on we were in school together, and after graduation our paths would cross several times. After completing classes at KU I was lucky enough to student teach at East Heights. There I had Rosemary King and Mary Anne to help get me ready for what would be a teaching career in special education that lasted 32 years. Mickey and I both loved the country and our dogs. I am very sorry for your loss, and wish to extend my greatest sympathy. A great guy that is gone too soon and who will be missed by many.

    Mickey was a great friend during my KU Days. David was a great friend growing up in the Sunset Hills area. I am so very sorry and want to express my sympathy to the McClure family.
