    I got the call I have been hoping I would not get today. Mike passed away this afternoon with Betty by his side. I have been thinking a lot about what I was going to say. He was a great friend to alot of people even some he never met in person. Please continue to pray for Betty. I will miss Mike a lot as will a lot of other people. I was told the funeral will be tomorrow afternoon but I will update as soon as I get the arrangement details.

    It's all Good, Mike...

    I do not know Mike, but I read about him on the other thread (no more chemo.). My prayers go out to his family. May they find peace at this time of sorrow. Dale

    There are no words to express my feelings. I only "met" Mike through this forum and personal emails. He was a gentleman and a real person. His willingness to help out a rookie shooter with powder and load questions was just incredibly helpful. I had the chance to return the favor when he had a spat with Airgas over his small cylinder, and I have old and deep connections that I was able to call on and help get him resolution.

    It is a sad day, but I know Mike is in a better place. Hold a spot buddy, I look forward to knocking them down with you someday up there.

    My condolences to Mike's family.

    I am so sorry to hear this. I never got to meet him in person. He will not be forgotten.

    I feel like I knew him through his posts here but I only got to talk to him on the phone as I too own a Bill Cole and we talked while he was building his. Ray

    Edit. Came back to give the obituary web link in case you want to sign the guest book.

    Mike was one of those people that make the world a better place and he sure did make this forum better. He will be missed by all that knew him or read his posts on here. I hope that his family can feel some peace knowing he is in a better place and not suffering any more.

    Mrs. Betty, I will continue to pray for you and your family. When I saw this thread I was saddened for a moment and then realized that Mike was in a better place. No more pain, no more suffering. I know that his being gone is hard to accept initially but it's now your choice how you look at it. You can rejoice now that He is with His Heavenly Father or you can remain downcast. Choose to rejoice over the good times and fond memories. He will surely be sadly missed but I look to one day meeting him there in Heaven. Jackie B.

    The conversations we had all seems they're yesterday. If this is how life goes, God Bless.

    He was a value asset to TS.

    Mike's knowledge on Perazzis was one of the best I have ever seen on any forum. I had emailed him a few times to pick his brain good and he always gave me a wealth of knowledge. He bent over backwards to help anyone.

    Rest in Peace Mike
