As thousands have paid their respects this week, prayers, peace, thoughts, love to the family, friends, employees and fans of Mike Illitch.
Illitch who was the owner of Little Caesar's pizzerias, the Fox Theater, the Detroit Tigers and Red Wings left us too soon. He was 87.
Under his ownership, the Wings won 4 Stanley Cup Championships and the Tigers went to 2 World Series.
Illitch invested in and changed Metro Detroit for the better.
He will be dearly missed.
