Mike was a great friend during our high school days. We were together a lot until I left in 1980. I never saw him since that time. However, we reconnected a while back. It was then that I learned of him illness. I am extremely sorry that Mike has passed away. I pray that the God of Peace will provide comfort to all of your hearts during this difficult time.
