    Extend my deepest sympathy to the family of classmate Myles “Micky” Davidson. Micky was and always showed himself to be a good and faithful man. I enjoyed being with him in class meetings and outings. His personality was very engaging and he always knew the right thing to say. May your memories give you strength, peace and comfort during these trying times.
