Linda, I am so sad to learn that Mike has passed. We worked for many years together at IRD and later Enter-IRD and I know that you and your family faced many challenges with Mike’s health issues. I haven’t seen Mike for quite a few years now but I will always remember his broad smile, his love of golf and his and positive attitude as he battled the disease. Condolences to you and your family at this most difficult time.
