In Remembrance of Billy

My hockey team from 1971 got together for a reunion in the fall.
Recently one of my classmates, Billy Corkery passed away. Pictured
here second from the left with other members of our class, Bobby
Muse on his right, Bob McNanama, Dave Hynes, Kevin Hampe on his
left, and me with Joey Bertagna in front. Hynes, Mac, and Billy were
one of the greatest lines to ever play at Harvard, the "Local Line" or
"ABC" line. Billy was from Arlington, Mac from Belmont and Hynes
from Cambridge. They were all heroes to me.


This Black Walnut and Douglas Fir Lantern was made
in celebration of my friend Alex's 60th birthday
and his Dad's funeral on the same day. Dr. Mac
was 94 and an amazing guy. His light shines on.
