Rancho Mirage, California
12:00 p.m.

Bo Schembechler was an outstanding citizen in every respect. He was a dear friend of ours and will be greatly missed by his numerous friends. It is a great loss to the University of Michigan in particular and football in general.

Betty and I send our deepest condolences, thoughts and prayers to Bo’s wife Cathy and their family.
