To Mike's family and friends
I am so saddened to hear of Mike's passing. I’ve known Mike for the past 20 years and I looked forward to going to Capital Supply and banter back and forth with Mike. We always made each other laugh and would help each other catch up on people we knew from Ballston and brag about our kids. He always liked my stories from my time as a Union Organizer. I have missed him, and now the loss is even greater. RIP Mike.

Dale King

Mike and I went way back... elementary school at Malta Ave, sleep overs, serving together as Alterboys in the Episcopal church, and waking me through my plumbing problems. Whenever we would see each other, it was like time hadn't passed. I will miss you my friend, and wish I took more time to catch up on life with you. We will meet again on the other side, whole and in the presence of His joy. Life is too short Mike, but our memories are like they were just yesterday.
