Deepest loving sympathies and prayers to Mike's family. I grew up with Mike and am lucky to have so many great memories as neighborhood kids. We were raised in the great days of kickball and softball in the streets, hide n seek involving the whole block...we had woods, a creek, sears skates and great parents. I remember Mike as easy going, gentle natured, a smiling and dimpled soul. I sure his nature never changed. May God bless you with the happiness of memories of your lives with Mike.
