    My life as I knew it was shattered when I got the call of Mikes passing. My best friend just “Gone” in an instant. I will cherish my memories of our 52 years together and will carry his memory in my heart for the rest of my life. He was like a brother to me and my heart held so much love for him. May he rest in peace amongst the gardens of Heaven.
    To Mikes family my sincere condolences to you. He was one in a million.
