It has been a while since I've sat down and written an entry on the blog. It's not that I don't care, or can't find time... it's just that I haven't had anything "important" to talk about. Tonight I want to talk about something.... someone.... important.
As some of you might already know, Mike Chandler passed away this morning, at the young age of 55. For those of you who didn't know Mike, he had been a teacher at the High School for many years. Mike was also involved with athletics in Stanwood. He was my softball coach in the mid '90's and stuck with the team as they transitioned to fastpitch. Mike, better known as MC to his players, was a great human being. He was a fireball at times and was always good for a laugh or two. Highly respected by his peers and often looked up to as a father-figure by his students and players, Mike will be missed.
The Schmitt family sends their thoughts and prayers to Becky and the rest of the Chandler family.
With happy memories but a sad heart,
