Our sincerest condolences to Merlie and the boys. I've always held Mike in very high regard after having had the pleasure of working beside him for a few years. I thoroughly enjoyed his company during the work week. He had an unshakably calm demeanor and always operated with integrity, which I looked up to. May God be with you all and give you strength, always.
