    My Condolence to the family. I knew Mike will and just found out. Sorry I couldn’t attend his funeral being I found out a day late. It times like this in a high tech world u how could one lose contact with those close to you and maybe open your eyes to those who are. He brought a lot of laughter in to my life he was kind and caring and love to cook back then. I’ll miss him and treasure the memories of a kind gentle man. Mike RIP and God Bless.
