This is the first night of Hockey East Playoffs. Emma met me at the game and we were in that last row of section 117. We had planned to have a big family dinner to celebrate Mom's 86th birthday but she picked up a mid-day stomach bug and therefore the change in plans. I had later learned that prior to the game, long time friend, UMass Lowell and Riverhawks supporter Tim Ebacher was memorialized. Tim had passed away one week earlier from a long bout with cancer. I had arrived too late to know of the commemoration. I dedicate these pictures in Tim's memory.
