    My deep sympathy goes out to you and all affected by the passing of Mike from this world to the next. He is forever etched in my memories as I know he is yours. May he live on in spirit through the memories made and stories we are able to share. As a friend, patriot, and most importantly, a family man, Mike provides a great guide on how to live one's life. Thank you Mike for being the man you are. Forever grateful.
