Hello. Most of Mike's Maine friends don't know me, but for for a brief period of time he lived in Salem NH. I can honestly say that during a seminal part of my late-boyhood he was my best friend. I am literally trembling with tears as I type this. Mike, buddy, I will never forget fishing at the Millville Lake Dam with you, riding our bikes as fast as we could around the neighborhood, listening to Kiss, running through the woods, sleepovers at your house. Every 11 year old boy in his life can only hope to have a friend like you. I love you man, and I can't believe this happened. You had a huge impact on my late childhood. I am stunned by this, buddy. Rest in peace. I can honestly say that from grades 5-6 you were my best friend. This hurts.
