    Mary McCann, who left us a few short months ago deserves to be mentioned in this thread. Her husband Jack is "carrying on" but the entire Gonzaga family misses Mary.

    Without intending to be part of a Hallelujah chorus, my shout out is to my classmate at two institutions of higher learning, Zag77, Sam Cozza. It would be fitting that perfection at the foul line would be the key to a Bulldog victory. Because I prize my anonymity, Sam never knew who Bowser "really" was [who does?], even though I used to make snide remarks about garbanzo beans and pasta in replies to some of his posts, hoping he would guess. A perfect straight man for any comedy routine with a nice chuckle to boot. Its too bad he isn't here for us to see his reaction to a GU Final Four. I saw a thread about him about the time he passed. I got some stories to tell, but it didn't feel right to share them. Still doesn't.

    I too miss Father Tony, which leads me to my post. He presided over the wedding of my god sister and her father, and my god father, Edmund Ganley, would be so proud of this team and Coach Few. Originally from
    New Jersey, followed by a long career in LA, he moved up to Spokane and put all three daughters through Gonzaga. He's the best man I've ever known-just a fine human being-who was taken from us way too soon. I miss him but am so grateful knowing he's proud of his Zags! I'll be cheering with you, Ed.
    Go Zags!!!

    Classmate Mike Hope, fellow denizen of Alliance House (where Sam Cozza was our RD ). Mike was one of Sister Conway's best debaters. When he got on a roll, trying to get a word in edgewise was like a hummingbird trying to take a drink from a fire hose. Went on to working for the Krannert Executive Education Program at Purdue. Like Sam, Mike left us way too soon.

    I got to know Sam over the last 4 or 5 years .... he was a true Zag through and through.

    Great comments GZ!
    If you can't handle the confusion, stay out of the Foo!
