The heart of Rice Street


The North End Neighborhood Organization (D6) is saddened by the passing of Mike Hartzell, (Bones) 71. As many heartfelt testimonials regarding Bones and his life are posted illuminating the way he lived his life, being the heart of Rice Street we can only echo what everyone is saying. Mike lived his life as he chose and was an honest and honorable man. He will truly be missed by so many.
