My deepest of sympathy for the family and friends of Mike. No words can truly give the full depth of the loss that has been suffered. He was such a great guy. He never hesitated to volunteer and was one of the hardest working people I've ever met. I am the Commander of American Legion Post 81 Melbourne Florida and proud to have had Mike as a member. I can also say he was my friend and a friend of my family. RIP Mike you left a gallant mark in the path that you walked and will be forever remembered.

Sincerely Sad,
Cmdr Stretch, my family and the Post 81 Family.
