My heart breaks for you all because Mike was a rare soul. I can not remember too much of my childhood with out you guys, you were a second family to me (unfortunately that meant a second set of parents to discipline me also). I always loved being apart of the family and have looked back over the years fondly many times. Rest in Paradise Mike and make sure you give my Mother a big hug from me.
