Mike had a great sense of humor and he always encouraged you. When I wasn't doing well, he'd kid me and say, "You can do it. You're a Gesu boy!" At our 50th STFS reunion, he took me aside and told me he thought of me every day. When I stood in disbelief, he assured me that when he took a shower every morning, he would look at his knee and see the cinder scar that I had caused when I pushed him down on the cinder parking lot behind Gesu in 7th grade!
