It was with great sadness and shock that I read of Mike's passing in today's State paper. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
I will never forget those days when Mike and I would warm up with your dance class in the studio over Yesterday's restaurant.
I always thought that I would go long before Mike. I was the Art Teacher at Flora.
Give my regards to your parents. I would love to have a recent picture of your family.
