    Mindy and I extend our deepest sympathies for your loss. I was honored to have worked side by side with Hawk during a number of dart tournaments and in the league, and I was proud to call him a friend. I know words are of little comfort during times like this, but please know you are in our thoughts and prayers, and if there’s anything we can do to make things even a little easier, please let us know.
