Update from classmate Richard Botkin regarding Mike Hopfe …
FROM RICHARD: Have spoken twice with Mike; once Saturday and then again yesterday afternoon. Left you a voicemail but, in the event you missed it, here’s what I learned from Michael:It is still undetermined how Trisha died. Her body is being held by the authorities for more forensic work. Mike thinks she will be released by Tuesday or Wednesday.
The services for her are likely to be sometime next week. It might be nice if any Punahou friends in the Bay Area could go to the services to show support for Mike. Here’s how:
- Phone: 925-689-2168
- Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Snail Mail: 4348 Satinwood Drive, Concord, CA 94521
I believe that it is critical he hear from friends. Tell the folks they should not be afraid to call. Michael appreciates hearing from them.
Editor’s Note: So you’ve all heard it here. It’s one thing to offer your thoughts and prayers, quite another to let Mike know about them. Let him know if you are so inclined.
