This was a shock to me i have known Mike for sometime know, i have not seen him for a long time my toughts and prayers go out to the family. It is funny how life goes he lived 40 minutes from me and i was always going to go visit him but never did. Now knowing he is gone breaks my heart. Visit the ones you love and respect for someday we will never get that chance again. Mike may you rest in peace my old friend.
