"Uncle Mike" was such a good man and we are shocked and saddened by his passing. He will always hold a special place in our hearts. May you rest in peace and know that you were loved so much. Aunt Glenna, we love you so much and we are here for you!

There were a few years a while back when Mike was a twice weekly figure in my life. He always made me laugh and actually liked to listen while I complained about my silly problems, most of which he seemed to find amusing. But that was alright, because he helped me see the humor in it, too. Mike offered me advice, but also followed it up by saying he was no expert and certainly not perfect. I didn't mind. He told me what was on his mind, gave me an honest opinion, and more times than not showed himself to be a wise man...and a great friend. It's his sense of humor and quick wit that makes me smile now, even though I know how much I'll miss him. It was a gift of his that has passed on to his daughter, Kim, and already the grandkids are showing signs. (I feel like I should apologize for that...*wink*) The entire family knows how to kick back and really enjoy the simple things in life. They know how to laugh. Mike helped teach them that. It's a priceless trait that's spread to encompass all of us lucky enough to be counted friends or relatives. I consider myself very fortunate to have known Mike and his daughter, Kim. I only wish I'd basked in that particular family's light a little longer, or appreciated it a little more. My most sincere regards to everyone missing Mike right now. Glenna, Kim, the kids...if I could send a month's supply of hugs instead of flowers and pretty words, I would. I'm thinking of you all, and smiling to myself with the memories of Mike. He was always great at making me smile...

A Long Long time ago I was Mike's niece....I have many many fond memories of lots and lots of good times at the race tracks when I was a young girl. I remember him to be one of my favorites!! His son Michael is my cousin and it is unfortunate that Mike had to pass away on his son's birthday. I remember him taking me to the bar up on rock road so I could play pin ball with him and his friends and I remember every time I would win they would buy me a cherry coke!! I will never forget the fun times!! Here's to TFB racing....
