When I first met Mike at a baseball game . I was keeping score and he approached me several times with questions and I did not know how to take him this was when the boys were young. After that he really grew on me. There are so many memories , I am saddened of this you will be truly missed by your family and freinds . I am glad to have known him. Family are in my prayers.
