I was sorry to hear about the passing of Mike. We hadn't seen each other for around 30 years ago, but we were very close childhood friends. I was lucky enough to run into Bill and Shelby several times when visiting the New Orleans area over the last ten or fifteen years.
Mike and I were best friends for much of our elementary school years. We lived just a few houses away from one another and shared a lot of interests.
I remember how we used to follow the Apollo missions in the late 60s and early 70s. We wanted to become astronauts - we even said we would become the first astronauts to go to Mars. We were also in the cub scouts together and went to the same elementary school.
Mike, thanks for your friendship in the early part of my life. I'm sorry to see you go!
Bill, Shelby, Scott, Kelly, and Ben (I remember when you were born, Ben), I am so sorry for your loss.
Dear Bill and Shelby:

You will have him forever in your memories.

Dear Bill and Shelby; I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. Children aren't supposed to go before the parents.
You will have the comfort of his memory forever in your hearts.
The members of the Lafreniere patron board have been notified.
I was shocked and saddened to hear of your son's sudden passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. Your friend always.
I am so sad to hear that we have lost Mike. He was a great student and librarian. I particularly remember how he stayed at the Rudolph Matas Health Sciences Library at Tulane during Katrina, saving systems and servers. He always had such a wonderful smile. My prayers and sympathy are with his family, colleagues and friends.

So sorry to hear about the loss of your son. He has started his new life as an angel in heaven with our Lord and Savior and my prayers are with you both.
Bill and Shelby, Our social and swimming together at Elmwood mean a lot to us and seeing you grieve over Mike's passing saddens us. You both have our sympathy.

My deepest sympathy for your loss. I worked with Mike on several library committees. He was always kind, professional and his contributions were greatly appreciated.
I worked with Mike for several years at Tulane Medical Library. After I retired, he rescued me from home computer disasters on many occasions - always with patience and good humor. I'm so sorry to hear this very sad news.
Unfortunately I will be unable to attend the service, but my thoughts and prayers are with Mike and his family.
