  • Notes 
    • Michael always wore black and chewed Dentyne gun He was very handsome and everyone loved him very much. He had cut off the end of his finger at Jerome's and was hospitalized on Friday. Sunday we were having Pamela Erickson baptized and Edith an d John Haechler, Michael and Myself Marcella Erickson were to be her Christian sponsors. The Dr. didn't want to let Mike out of the hospital because he had lost so much blood. They finally agreed to let him come to the Church just long enough t o stand up for Pam. He had to go directly back to the hospital, he couldn't even come to the house for lunch. The next night Pearl and Frank were going to Clyde's and let Shirley and Marcie off to Visit Mike and found that he had been released t hat afternoon. That night he and several friends were on thier way to Ladysmith and hit another car head on. The woman and her unborn child were killed. Michael and Mary Jane Black were also killed.
