Sorry to hear of Mike's passing. Regret our class lost contact and are only now reading his obituary from 2001. I found Mike to be a decent person. He was respectful and sensitive. When we did a skit our senior year, I was so nervous I wasn't sure I could go on stage. Though I didn't have a key part, another passenger in a fishing boat, Mike encouraged me back stage. I'm so glad I didn't back out. I appreciate his sacrifice, serving in the military and particularly during the Vietnam War. I believe Mike is in a good place and at peace, still, his passing is a loss of a good man.
