    Mike and I worked together at Advance Auto Parts. Our relationship was a professional one, but we did talk from time to time about personal matters. We had a lot in common with similar struggles and successes. I would do anything to help him and I believe he would have done anything to help me.

    Mike you will be missed. I believe you were an angel walking among men. You have gone home now and I can only hope we will meet again some time.
