Not sure what to say?

We were friends and neighbors of Mike in Colorado. There was no one like Mountain Mike. He traveled the world, full of knowledge, best cook in town, die hard skier and never boring. We will always remember the cookouts, his awsome joy of cooking, laughing and singing with him and watching the love he had for his best friend Max, his happy playful dog. We can see him skiing in heaven having a blast free of pain and sorrow. Too young, too soon. We love you Mike and will be missed but not...

We were Mike's neighbors for a little while here in Dolores and we just wanted to express our heartfelt condolences to his family. Mike was indeed an excellent cook and always eager to share from his kitchen...shrimp, ribs etc. and welcome us into his home. Rest In Peace Mike.

Sorry for your loss my deepest sympathy for your Loss. Will keep all of you in my prayers.

Mike and I were friends when we were kids, I have good memories of Mike,sorry he's gone so soon! May God give strength to his family and friends. Craig Bernhagen
