My heartfelt sympathy. Michael, I will miss your respectfulness and our neighborhood conversations. You always greeted me as "Mr. Strid" from the time you were small. Our meetings were brief and in passing but I was proud of the bond we shared as friends. I will miss you Mike, but your memory will always remain in my heart.
