    Best former neighbor and best friend I could ever had. He loved to make home made bread and rolls and insisted I had to take half. Thanks Mike for those extra pounds. Loved and will miss you.

    Mike !!!! What exactly are you doing? Does not seem normal to start the day or arrive home without this friendly banter. It is like at any moment you are going to open the door and have some daily "unofficial" greeting....and we just start laughing about basically anything and everything. A wonderful neighbor whom became a great friend. Thank you for the laughs and enjoyable memories. Your personality lives on in so many thoughts. With Respects, Shane
