Karen, I cannot tell you how stunned and sorry we are to learn of Mike's passing. It feels like it was not long ago we were swapping navy tales or talking about motorcycles. Greeting each other as we walked the concourse at Super Bowl. Mike was a great guy and always so friendly. You two were always so happy together. our deepest sympathies to you and your families. Mike's smile and warm personality will be deeply missed. Sailor, rest your oar.

Karen, no words I write can reach the depth of your sorrow. Mike and I met just after his discharge from the Navy. He had taken a job at an up and coming business in North East Philly where he soon started to get notice because of his no-nonsense approach to his job. He was very sharp and very bright in his roll and caught favor at his employers very quickly. I installed many machines under his supervision and grew to respect and love him. I have left Wisconsin and now live where he grew up and can never forget our companionship. My heart and thoughts are with you.
