We were born before the wind
Also younger than the sun
Ere the bonnie boat was won as we sailed into the mystic
Hark, now hear the sailors cry
Smell the sea and feel the sky
Let your soul and spirit fly into the mystic
And when that fog horn blows I will be coming home
And when the fog horn blows I want to hear it
I don't have to fear it...

Michael William Egan was shot and killed by Vincent Stemle on December 23rd, 2004, in downtown Portland, Oregon. On August 5th, 2005 Stemle was convicted of Manslaughter One but for insanity in Michael's death, and died two years later at the Oregon State Mental Hospital in Salem. Both the Portland Police Bureau and the Multnomah County District Attorney's office have treated my family with a tremendous amount of professionalism and compassion, and we are grateful for their service.
