I can still see Mike's big smiling face at many events at Virginia Tech, at the FIJI Fraternity house and most of all at the football games in Lane Stadium. His presence will be missed and his jovial attitude. My best to his family.

Anne, I am so sorry to hear of Michael's passing. Please accept my deepest sympathy. I remember Mike so well. I can picture him sitting on the front porch with you, Norma and Mary. I remember him as such a sweet, fun guy. I know he will be terribly missed. I am keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. God Bless.
