I was a caregiver to this wonderful amazing man. He was truly one of a kind. He just loved life and lived in the moment with no worries. I was only with him for a short time, but he made such an impact on me.. for the better. So glad I was able to know him. I'm truly going to miss you. Mike, be at peace.

I was Mike's care giver for a just a few short months, but in that time we developed a special bond and friendship. He was so funny and smart and a lot of fun to be around. I will miss spending time with him. RIP Mike
