It is Thursday morning as I write this. Last night the St. Louis TV team completed it's "This One's For You" telecast which honors our troops and families both here and overseas. This is truly a very rewarding show for all of us involved. The emotions emitted because of this telecast range from utter happiness and laughter to a giant lump in the throat to watery eyes. Last night's production was no exception. After we went off the air I received news that blew those emotions out of the water. My great great friend and TV teammate Mike Helling had suffered a stroke. Not much more to say and I couldn't say it if I tried.
