    I've known Mike most of my life having attended St. Irenaeus Grade School and a couple of years at St. Mary's High School with him.  He was quite a character and I loved seeing him occasionally and chatting for awhile.  He was always friendly and respectful to me and I enjoyed knowing him, laughing with him, and I always wished him good things in his life.  I will add him to my prayer list.
