    I am so very sad to hear of Mike's passing, he was a kind and gentle person. Mike was my neighbor in Raleigh before he moved to Wilmington. He stopped to see me every time he went golfing with his friend Joe in Raleigh. He will be truly missed. If his sister reads this ,please text or call me and let me know what happened to Mike. Such a great guy,I'm very sad. Lorraine Hafleigh Ldhafleigh@live.com 919 610 5529

    I couldn't light just one candle for Mike; I had to light a bunch. I will miss him very much. I will miss our talks and challenges. I will miss the way we bounced ideas off of each other. I will miss the way he grounded me when I went too far. I will miss Mike. He touched the lives of many even though he tried to stay in the background. I'm glad he will be reunited with his mother and father, but I know he will miss those he left behind. He loved his family very much. I will keep them in my thoughts and prayers.
