I had the honor of meeting Mike 30 years ago and what an impression he left on me. I loved when he came around back then and loved seeing him every Sunday at church. Big Mike with the best big voice ever. I will miss him doing the readings at church and looking across the way at him and his beautiful family. He always told me how proud he was of his two sons. His eyes glistened when he spoke about them. We lost a great one here on earth, but Heaven gained one cool cat as he would put it. Rest in peace my friend. We will see each other again.

Mike was a dear, dear friend. We shared a lot of days on the lake solving the world's problems. He was one of the finest men I have ever known, and I Will seriously miss him.
