    He has finally run that final Marathon to Heaven…I will forever cherish my fond memories of him from BHS especially those when he would begin his own exercise routine on the large therapy mat and excert such excitement both vocally and physically…I would always tell him he was preparing for the Chicago marathon!!! I was so blessed to know him…My sympathy to all of you with the loss of your son, brother, uncle.
