  1. My condolences to Mrs. Wright. I still don’t believe this. It hasn’t been two weeks ago that I goggled Mickey to get his number to call him since I heard that he lived in Fredericksburg where I work. I failed to make the call and now this. My feelings go out to this this family. They are one of the sweetest family’s I have ever been associated with.

  2. Thank you Steve for leaving such a sweet message.

  3. To Evelyn & Mickey’s family.
    Was real surprised to hear of Mickey’s passing. He was such a sweet boy, as we remembered him from high school with Barry. We are so proud of his military career & what a great person he was. Know he will be missed by Hot Springs friends as well.
