Mike was one of my best life long friends,I had known since since childhood,and as adults,had lived and worked with him for a period of time.I have always considered him to be the brother I never had. It's difficult to express the lose I feel now that he is gone.  He and his family are some of the nicest folks I have ever known.Mike and I had always helped each other work on our hot rods and spent many hours just driving them around and having fun with our friends.Anyone would have been lucky to have a friend like Mike.My heart goes out to his wife,son, family and friends and I will never stop thinking of him and I know that we will see each other again someday with our Heavenly Father .
