    Very sad to hear of Mike's passing. Remember the great conversations with Mike and the summer barbeques.

    I always enjoyed seeing you and Mike out on the golf course while I was marshalling at Sunset Ranch. He loved his golf and was an inspiration to those of us who complained about our games.He was such a kind gentleman and it was a pleasure knowing him. My prayers are with you.
