"As a kid, there was a neighborhood bully who constantly threw rocks and balls at me, so I asked my brothers what to do, and they said hit him with a hockey stick. But my mom said, 'Invite him over to your birthday party.' The bully was the first to arrive at the party, the happiest kid there, and he was the last to leave. From then on we were friends, so my mom really taught me the lesson of love your enemy."
- Murray Howe about his mother, Colleen, who passed away after a battle with Pick's disease Friday.
