This sad notice from Richard Shaw...regarding the passing of Mike Schackne BHS '63

I just got some very sad news to pass on to you all.
This is what I got from Rich Shaw...Jud

Mike passed away Sat. Am around 5:30. He had been undergoing treatment for several months. It started with inability to breathe due to fluid in his lungs. Biopsy of lung tissue was sent all over the country with the help of Bob Reback, Dave's brother.Not one expert could determine what it was. They suspected mesothelioma but the chemotherapy given to him did not work. He got an infection in his colon as he was taking drugs with anti-bacterial properties which affects the immune system. He became weaker, lost his appetite, lost weight and was hospitalized. He and the family were told on the 22nd that there was nothing more they could do medically: it is terminal. Mike went home with hospice care, his choice, where he spent his last hours with his family by his side.

The funeral is today, the 27th at Mt. Sinai, Hollywood Hills, 3::00 p.m.

Mike, You were one of us. Your smile and humor regularly lifted our spirits. Your honesty kept us honest. You were always at the bottom of the pile in football.You didn't shy away from the hard choices we all faced. A part of us has left us temporarily. We will see you again someday. Rest in peace, my friend.
