    I was shocked to hear of Mike’s death. I was in Colorado visiting my daughter so couldn’t attend the visitation. Mike was a talented cross country runner in high school who always pushed me and even beat me in my final race when I was a senior. We didn’t keep close contact over the years, but I remember him as a good and kind man. My condolences to all his family.
