Another Decade has come and gone, we will miss…

You remember the fears of Y2K and panic that the world would end? I still can’t believe that it has been 10 years, time flies! I was reading something on line about the people who we have lost this past decade and the top 10 most important events and it got me thinking. Brother Mike K., Billy, momma and I were discussing the various establishments that have closed in the past 10 years and I am sorry if I left some off but here goes;
