He was my hero and everyone else's hero as well. His was a life that deserves our respect and one that kids ought to emulate. He was a man's man, a true giant among men even though he only stood 5' 9". His strength was matched by no one and he used every bit of it for good, not evil or hate. He met his demise when someone's greed took out a friend of ours. The case is still open, this is just a tid bit of about his life. I don't hope he "rests" in Peace, I hope he's having the time of his life in Heavenly Peace. God bless him because Mike blessed the lives of everyone he came in contact with.
