I just heard that Mike has passed away from Tim who I haven't spoken to in years. Mike and Tim were like brothers to me since we lived next door and grew up together on First Street in Wasco. Nick and Betty were like a second set of parents, and they made me feel like a third son. They had the first pool in the neighborhood and we had some great times in the summer in that pool. Too many good times to list but my sister Nancy and I have fond memories of the Gilmer family when we grew up on First Street. Mike was a special person and my deepest condolences to his family. Mike will be missed.
