My deepest condolences to Mike's family. I knew Mike for many years and am grateful for all that I learned from him in our time together. Mike had a loving heart and an inquisitive mind and was sincere and focused in everything he did. He was a modern-day Renaissance man! His love for learning and for music knew no bounds! Rest in peace dear Mike. May you find everything you were looking for in Heaven. -Lindsay
