What sad news to read of Mike's passing. He and his family have been part of my life for years and I hold many happy memories of them all. Mike was always a big guy in personality and body. Quick with a smile. His Dad gave me one additional year of believing in Santa Claus (thank you, Earl) and Karen taught me swimming lessons at Shady Glen 5 million years ago. So please accept my heartfelt condolences for Mike's death. He will be remembered with fondness. Sheila Snydal Murphy
