My condolences to the family of Mike. I was in grade school with Mike at Queen’s Rangers over 40 years ago. I was just walking home from school with my 11 year old daughter yesterday and I was telling her about safety walking on the side of the road. I spoke about Pat and his death many years ago and I remember how his death affected us at such a young age. Mike’s name came up in discussion yesterday about this as Mike was in my grade. I find it very spiritually ironic to then read about Mike’s death in the paper today but feel like his spirit was alive in my thoughts and teachings to my daughter. I hope you can find peace and happiness in his memory.
I was deeply saddened by the news of Mike,s passing. My heart felt condolences to you and your family
