In memory of my Uncle Mike, July 1950–November 2006.

With Uncle Mike c. 1973
Uncle and nephew, circa 1973.

I almost never saw you, but you gave me one of my names. I hardly knew you, but the older I grow the more I think I understand you. I wonder if you ever realized how alike we are?

Tomorrow I'm taking a day off to go shooting with the Rolleiflex you gave me. I can't think of a better way to remember you.

Peace, man.
