I had friend like that he also was my brother in law . He was an exmarine that fought in vietnam . He came home a heavy drinker and drug user . We got him off the drugs but he still was a heavy drinker , i'm talking about a fifth a night . He died in 2002 at the age of 50 of a failed liver . He loved the california mountains so i spread his ashes up there . I miss him and his wit , he was a varacious reader every one enjoyed talking to him when he was half way sober .

Mikey was an ex army guy, stationed in Nam at Khe Sanh. They lived with motor attacks every day. One afternoon It was Mikey's turn to stand in the heat at the mess tent and grab a pot of beans and franks for the guys. While in line, their barracks was hit , and no one lived. That had to effect Mike's attitude towards life, always joking to hide his pain I think.
