We were so upset to see Mr. Drews obituary in the AJC. We were part of Mr. Drews Falcon family. Sat behind him in the Ga. Dome for many years. Had so much fun cheering on our favorite team. When the Falcons moved to MB stadium we didn't see him anymore but we would always contact him during the season to discuss our team and catch up on each others lives. We are very saddened by the loss of our friend and send our sympathy to his family. Reply to this comment
