Mike was one of the greatest mentors I've ever had. His wisdom, generosity, humor, and deep caring nature were unmatched by anyone I've ever encountered. From the first day we met, he welcomed me like a family member. 59 was far too young for him to pass. Make sure you tell the big guy upstairs about the "one-legged man in a butt-kicking contest" big guy! You're sorely missed here!
