Sandy & family, I have many long ago memories of Mike, post-Midnight Mass at our house, parties at the Faulbaums and Schwemmers, arm wrestling in the Althoff cafeteria, memories at SIUE... Mike was one of a kind. He went through life on roller skates. He is drawing 4 Aces right now. I am sorry for your loss Sandy. Rick

My deepest condolences Sandy. I have the best memories of Mike and I getting together with Mike's mom and dad in Vegas-memories that will last a lifetime. I'll be out of the country during Mike's services, so will not be able to attend. I hope you'll call on me if there's anything I can help you with.
