One of my best of my best friends and most humble person that I've ever met... You were the only person at one point in my life who truly cared for me and my well being. Mr. Adams you will forever be in my heart and stay on my mind. Your still here with me as we listen to Howling Wolf, sipping on some scotch and toasting a couple of pabst blue ribbons. I will continue your legacy of encouraging love, peace and understanding. Our memories will forever be shared with the universe my friend. Love you.... Stay cool babe!...
I just realized that the photo of Mike and I is in the slideshow...what an honor. I would love to get a copy of that photo somehow.
Mike and I met in 2003 when I was looking for a roadtrip buddy for the drive from Seattle, WA to Okemah, OK for the annual Woodyfest. I remember picking him up at his house and his mother taking a picture of us both before we hopped into my 1989 Toyota Van to make the rest of the trip to OK. Mike was a gifted listener and we exchanged many stories - mostly about music. He had to endure my conversation on the way back from Woodyfest where, it had turned out I met my future wife. He was the first to hear about it. We remained pretty constant pen pals over the years where every time I got a letter or card, I would admire Mike's penmanship. I was culling my box of letters this weekend and found several of Mike's letters and felt that there was a reason we had lost touch. I was terribly saddened to just find out about his passing. Mike occupied a positive place on this planet and I will never forget him. That trip is one I will cherish forever. Godspeed Mike.
My name is Jordan Adams. I was Mike's great nephew. Michael was a guy with alot of talent. From writing music to playing chess with a friend he had the mind of a genius. A talented artists who loved Chicago. Mike could make friends with anyone because he had something in common with everybody. Mike will be greatly missed by friends and family. Stay cool babe.
Thank you for your sense of humor and all the good times we had as kids.
