Detective Notebook

I met him when I was about 14 or 15…My sister worked for him and Mike was about 8 years older. We talked about music and he was very much alive...

When I was 16 and 17 I moved into a house he was sharing with a couple of guys from Fontana….They had a wash room without a washer and dryer and it was Ocean Beach…I asked if that could be my room and he agreed..It was fantastic…I didn't know people could really live at the beach…the school messed up my records in my favor and I didn't want to complicate things by telling them..

Mike had a volkswagon that he had until he died about a week ago…when I was 17 we took it across the states..he had a way of making everything interesting….he's also one of the main reasons I became Catholic in 1999…I was just going to mention a couple of things about Mike but things are rolling out about what he did for me…I could write a novel...
