Only now, I read of Mike’s passing..Pat’s and my condolences.
Darlene and kids, the passing of Mike comes as big shock to me. He was a good friend for so many years and mentor for me throughout most of my career in the FAA. Our condolences to the you all and you are all in our hearts.
So Sorry Darlene and Family
Mike was a friend and I will miss him. I wish we could have been closer over the past years. We had a lot of good times in SLC so many years ago.
Sorry to hear about Mike, Darlene. I hope you are doing ok. I think old age is fast catching up to our group.
