I worked with Mike for 33+ years and loved that guy. He was always up to something, just waiting to get caught...
I am so glad his last years were people who Cared about him and took such great care of him.
Last saw him at a Halloween party at Camp Courageous and he recognized me...
Im sure we will miss his smiling face and mischievous nature.

will miss his smiling face.
