This weighs very heavily on my heart, I'm going to miss Michael. He had been a good close friend and was as much like a brother as an only child like myself could have. Here is too all the good times we shared shooting, fishing, camping, watching scifi, playing video games, cruising, talking, laughing and goofing off. I believe someday I'll see him again and there won't be anymore pain and sadness, only joy, until then I'm going to miss him.

Just learned of Mike's passing yesterday... and was so sorry to hear it. I remember hanging out with him in the college group at church, and always felt he was a gentle soul with a big heart and a listening ear. He was a good friend to many, including me. My thoughts and prayers are with you, and hope you find comfort in the fact you will see him again someday.
