Elaine & Family,
My thoughts are with you in this time of loss. Mike was a life long friend from grade 1 at Coolidge School throughout our adult life. He was my holder for kicking field goals and extra points in high school. My success in kicking never would have happened without Mike practicing each day before practice, with me. He was a true friend for life and I will miss him dearly. Herb Symes
