So sad to hear of Mike's passing. We were classmates from 1st grade through high school, I was a little more than 3 months older than Mike. I ran into him a few years back but was unaware of his illness. Life is so short and we take it for granted. I like to think we were always friends.
My prayers of comfort to his children and grandchildren. My heart hurts for you.
