I wanted to let you all know how sorry I was to hear about Mike. The obituary was very nice. Lots and lots of good memories come to mind. I remember the countless trips that he and Ted went on together to Canada! And I also remember the preparation to get ready and the fish fries at the house when they brought back all those fish! I hope that they are sharing all their stories again! As Megan said “they were best friends”. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
