Our sympathy to Karen and family. Tom remembered Mike on his 3 wheeler and Arthur in the car colliding all those years ago on a Sunday morning. Thankfully recovery was complete. I worked a little with Mike thru this cancer journey and he was brave and always wanting to be independent with his care. So very sorry for your loss.

My sincere thoughts and condolences to you, Karen and to Mike's siblings, Susan, Jerrod and Jim. He will certainly be missed. I have often thought about those boyhood days in the neighborhood and the Sunday morning his motor bike came up out of the ditch and landed on the top of our car. I know the steel in his leg kept that memory very vivid for him. I praise Mike for his bravery and independence during his illness. He was a very strong guy. My best to all.

Thoughts of the day Mike's motor bike came up out of the ditch and landed on the hood of our car remains very real and I am sure the steel in his leg was a vivid reminder for him. I admire Mike's bravery and independence during his illness. My best to you all.
