My deepest condolences to Mike’s family. He was my first love. I feel like part of me has died with him. He had a good heart and his special connection with animals, his urge to ease suffering, was a blessing to this world. Mike had a great sense of humor and was one heck of a chess player. May he rest in the arms of the Lord, until we meet again.


Deepest sympathy to all the family. Mike was a very special guy, we shared many great times together. I'm thankful for the time we shared together. Rest in peace Mike.
