Mike had a personality that was larger than life.  He loved cooking, fishing, and most of all music. A song he loved was “A Tout le Monde” by Megadeth. Through the song’s lyrics he would say:

So as you read this, know, my friends

I’d love to stay with you all

Please smile when you think of me

My body’s gone, that’s all

If my heart was still alive

I know it would surely break

And my memories left with you

There’s nothing more to say

Moving on is a simple thing

What it leaves behind is hard

You know the sleeping feel no more pain

And the living are scarred

A tout le monde

These are the last words

I’ll ever speak

And they’ll set me free
