I am so sorry to hear the news Mike as a good friend and a great musician. I had the honor of playing with him for many years in Deepwater, fond memories of him and his customized van. I will be unable to attend the service on Friday, I am out of town. Wanted to send my sympathies to Fay, Linda and Rick, it has been a long time. We will miss you Mike. Maybe you and Bowie can compare note as your singing back in the day did him justice.

Just wanted to offer a note of sympathy and prayer to your family on the loss of Mike. I hope that the love of your family, & good memories of time shared together with Mike will comfort you. What a friendly, kind & loving person. Hw was always speaking with love about his family, & showing us pictures of little Lindsey. We often talked about music, & fishing! He was fun to be around, and a pretty good cook. He's gone too soon, that's for certain. We'll miss him.
