    I look at it now saying he will never be at another one of my football games,I won’t get to give him a Christmas present,I won’t get to tussle with him again,I won’t get to say goodbye love you again,and he won’t see me grow up to be a man,and finally I won’t be able to fulfill my promise to him which was when I make it to the league I would buy him a beatific lake house ????

    Mike was a special guy.
    I only knew him for three years, but he made you feel like a good friend.
    He was a great golfing buddy. He put others first and always had a kind word.
    I know he was looking forward to the Ireland golf trip, and I was looking forward to having him along.
    Mike will be deeply missed.
    Prayers and condolences to his wife, children, grandchildren, and his entire family and friends.

    I am so sorry to hear of Mike’s passing. I knew him in high school, his locker was close to mine, so I saw him often back then. He had a great sense of humor and I can remember him making me laugh so hard! I always smile when I think of him. Rest in Peace Mike.
