Michael (Zippy) & his family have been our neighbors for years. Our daughter Rachel played with Mike & Lisa's son, Kris when they were quite young. Mike was always happy & friendly whenever we spoke. We hated seeing him having to be with Oxygen but, we never heard him complain. We will miss seeing you outside but, happy your not struggling anymore...Goodby neighbor
