Wendy and Mike - I'm so sorry for your loss and the pain your family is going through. My best advice is to take one day at a time and cherish the good times you had.

I worked with Mike many years ago at Smith Corona. He was one of the nicest guys I have ever met. I would run into him from time to time at a basketball game years later, when Mike Jr. was playing, and found he was still the same ol' friendly Mike. A great guy who will be sorely missed by friends and family. My condolences.
