A note from Captain Mac Michael,
" HART shipmates and families,
of us prepare to attend the fall reunion in Newport I want to deal with some unfinished personal business from our
2013 gathering in Louisville. As those who attended know, I was in a wheelchair or on crutches as a result of leg surgery
to remove a tumor. I would like to publicly thank everyone who reached out to me at that time, either by assisting my
wife with my wheelchair or simply with an encouraging word.
It was a great comfort to me at a difficult time, and both Jo and I were and are deeply grateful for your
support. It meant a great deal; thank you all! "Ya' Gotta Have HART" -- and you did.
I look forward to seeing you again in September.
Skip Mac Michael '83-85 "
years from now you will be more disppointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the
bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain
