I'm preparing to attend "Big Mike's" service and remembering things like the time we all piled into Mike and Connie's motorhome and went to Stayton for one of the best New Year's Eve celebrations ever; I remember the Super Bowl Parties and the friends we made in that awesome "barn", the many times Mike would drop by and visit, both before Larry passed away and after. I so appreciated him taking the time to visit me and my mother, reminiscing all of our favorite stories of Larry. I remember his upbeat personality and that beautiful big smile and those impossibly blue twinkly eyes even when he was not feeling well. I will miss you Mike. I hope you and Larry are at a pool table somewhere up there.
