What special memories you helped create for me. All the experiences involving the airport, the softball games, times around the pool, and many other bring a smile to my heart and a warmth to my soul. I always knew you had my back, no matter what. I could never thank you enough for just being Mike, my friend, and my brother.

A salute on your journey west, may you have fair skies and tailwinds.
