To the Family of Coach John ''Red'' McManus, I have so many cherished memories of this gentle man that I would hardly know where to start.This year during March Madness it was Coach K from Duke University that offered some kind words about this legendary college coach. My prayers and thoughts are with the entire McManus family during this time of the spritual celebration of the life John ''Red'' McManus. MAY HE REST IN PEACE.
