I am so sorry to hear this news and my heart breaks for all of you all. I was honored to know Starsky and play volleyball with him for a while. Starsky was family to us. I am sorry I will not be able to make the services but I pray you all know you all are in my prayers and I share you sorrow. Pray the Lord will provide the comfort and strength and peace in knowing Starsky is at resting in heavenly peace.
