Mike Hannafan introduced me to Leonard Cohen and political discussions. He was a smart, caring guy. Peace, Mike.

I remember Mike mainly from grades 5-8 at St Petronille. He was always a kid that moved amongst and connected various groups and got along with most, but the only time I ever had a public "fight" (just wrestling around) happened in connection with Mike. The story goes that I used to regularly walk to school with several girls in my neighborhood. A couple of times in 7th grade we ditched school, hopped a bus to Oakbrook Mall, and spent the day shoplifting for kicks. Their "boyfriends" who will remain nameless told Mike to beat me up so I wouldn't get the girls in trouble. One day after school outside Webb's drugstore, we rolled around on the ground for a minute or two. Neither one of us were much of a fighter.

As I remember it, after that Mike and I became friendly enough to have sleepovers and hang out, smoking cigarettes and being uncool. Mike was actually the kid who clued me in about masturbation, so at least in one sense I can honestly say he really affected my life in a fundamental way. One of the people you never forget.
