All who knew or met Mike soon learned what an amazing, inspirational, and special man he was. He touched the lives of all he met by his optimistic outlook, his humor, and his kindness. Let his legacy be that we all become more patient, more tolerant, more loving, and compassionate because we learned that from Mike.
