We are so deeply saddened to hear of Mike's passing. While we did not personally know him, as neighbors on Bay Villa, we would always exchange a wave and a smile as he drove by. Sending our sincerest condolences to his family and children. He was much too young to pass. :( May he rest in peace and may his memory be eternal.
