Sorry to hear of Mikes' passing. He greeted me early on in my time at Holmes High School. He was a genuine friend to the school, cadet corps, and the community at large. His time as a Marise was only second to his time as a Husband, Father, and Grandfather. I am further sorry that conditions kept me from attending the memorial.
