Mike was my coffee buddy. Arguably the best friend I had at the time. We would look at the internet and have a laugh or look at interesting posts. He was a friend when you were in need as well.

Mike was the greatest friend anyone could ask for. He helped me in bad times and was there to encourage me to keep going, never asking anything in return except to do the same for someone else who needed help. Thank you for everything you did day in and day out. you will truly be missed my friend.
