    Dear Dianne: I am so sorry for your loss. So many times in this last week or so I have thought of you. I feel as tho I should have gotten on the elevator with you the day that I saw you in the hospital. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you. Call me 788-5939. Again I am sorry for you and Mike's family. All my love and prayers are with you.

    I had the great pleasure of working with Mike for 5 years at SWS. He taught me so much that I still use today! I remember talking, laughing and just the great comoraderie. His influence was far greater than he could have imagined. Rest in peace my friend, you will be missed!

    One of the finest gentlemen I've known. Always courteous, kind, and loving. A very hard working and determined man who accepted most any challenge with his admirable and distinguished grin. An outstanding performer, one admired by many. Rest our dear friend as it is well deserved.
