I was so sorry to hear of Mike's passing. I started working with Mike at the Allegheny National Forest in late 1982. He was one of many who make me feel welcome. During those years, it was quite apparent he loved his job. I will miss catching up with him at the credit union annual meetings. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
