I am so overwhelmed with sadness over the loss of Mike. He was such a wonderful person. I never imagined that when I saw him last, at Billy's funeral, that it would be the last time. We will miss him tremendously and I wish we could have had much more time with him. I will always remember him with love and kindness for the beautiful soul he was. We love all of you . May Mike fly high with the angels,
