I just wanted to say how sorry I am for your family's loss. I only knew Mike as a regular customer who came to the grocery store where I work. Quiet, yet always friendly. Always getting the same items, I knew what he was getting before he asked. I am sad not to be able to see his smiling face again, taken too soon.
