I last saw Mike just two weeks ago, at the Old Chicago in Southgate. We were best friends for forty years.

My journey with Mike began in the early 1970s, when we started hanging together with friends at the K-Andy bar in Detroit. Mike was small in stature and suffered from many physical difficulties, but it would be a mistake to judge a man like him by his size. Mike was a giant.
