Mike was a big race fan and friend, one of those that would see you, and maybe it had been a year and he would just pick up like he had seen you yesterday. Godspeed Mike.

Mary and Michelle, So sorry that you are having to go through this once again. Just remember all the good times and laughter throughout the years. Mike's body was definitely weaker than his soul and he is no longer in pain. I will definitely miss our banter back and forth regarding him being a Cardinals fan and me being a Cubs fan. Love you, Ronda and Greg
