Mike gave me the best gift anyone could give,Mike believed in me...He even tried to make me a better person (in spite of myself @ times !!) Mike in his infinite wisdom taught me back in the day (1980) how to go from where I was (recent college grad) to where I needed and wanted to be..Mike instilled in me to have a goal/dream...To go after it and work hard for it and at the same time enjoy the journey.... I thank God every day for that "Red Corvette" breaking down and the chance encounter I had first meeting Mike and him asking me for some "Roadside Assistance!" Boy I know I got the best of that deal !! (LOL!!) Looking back the two of us always had fun teasing /verbally torturing each other in whatever we did while each episode funnier than the last...It could be White Castle/Costco ( hot dogs/tuna fish /prosciutto) or auto/boat/house related always laughing ...
All this being stated the single "GREATEST GIFT" Mike bestowed on me is when ever we encountered anyone, Mike would always introduce me as "HIS FRIEND !!" All i can say is "Ditto" It has and always will be an honor being known as that...
Yours in Eternal Friendship,
P.S. Thanks Linda I owe you one !!

My wife Phyllis and I are deeply saddened by the passing of one of the best if not the best friend anyone can ask for. I will always think of him especially when going out for pizza, going to a movie or watching a fishing boat go by. The smile on his face when he came to dinner at our house bringing a large Chocolate cake and take half back home with him to enjoy. We pray that he is in Gods hands and with the star in his life Linda.
