Mike -- it was such an honor to know you. You were my best man at my wedding, you and I had a lot of good times racing remote control cars up and down the halls in our barracks. We had great times running up and down the highway going to your parents house in Ashland or my parents home in High Point for the weekend. Loved your family. They treated me like family. You took me to a live "Rocky Horror Picture Show in Ashland one weekend. That was so funny. All our prayers are with you and your family. Miss you so much man. I promise someday we'll go and get another glass of tea together. You are such a good friend. Karen and I are heart broken and we will keep Marcella and your entire family in our prayers. Has been such an Honor to work with you in the Air Force and to call you a Very Dear Friend all these years.
