I knew Mike some time ago in the 80's. I used to hang out with him and others I met in the Catholic Grp altho I was not Catholic. At the time, he had a close friend that was a lawyer and a close female friend named Laurel. I even came to your house once for dinner. Maybe you remember???
I lost touch when married and moved away.
From time to time, I would search Facebook to see if could locate any people I knew in Orlando and Mike was one of them.
I just read on FB of one of my Boone HS friend's wife passing on the 12th. For some reason, I searched Mike's name and was so surprised to see he passed this month too. Time gets away from us. Sorry to learn of his passing. His photo on here is really nice as well. He does not look like he changed much over the years.
It is really hard to lose a loved one and I am sure it is hard for you to lose Mike.
Too many leaving too soon these days.....
