Oh My God, that's just terrible terrible news!!!!

Michael was "old school"... A small, but feisty fish, in the proverbial
big pond.

Damn, that's a shame.

I regret to have to forward this really terrible news. Those of us who

friendship, energy, goofy world view, his love of classic rock and roll,
cowboy boots, good cigars, and exotic brews. He will be dearly and
deeply missed.
