An old friend of mine had a heart attack the day before New Year's Eve and died. According to another old friend that called me, he had pneumonia, and they put him on Prednisone for an infection or something, and it caused him to gain about 45lbs. Well, Mike was already about 300+, so the extra weight was not welcome. He wasn't an obese guy, just one of those giant people you run into every once in a while. Probably 6'4" or so, tattoos all over, but the nicest, gentlest person you'd ever want to meet. He was literally the kind of guy that would give you the shirt off of his back.

Oh my god.... did he used to throw some huge parties back in the day. His parties were always epic, the kind where the cops just give up trying to fuck with people and start directing traffic. When you're one of the coolest, nicest people in the world, everyone wants to show up at your party, ya know? He had this one party, that was pretty much par for the course, except I think his neighbors were trying to 'tell him something'. lol We woke up the following morning and went outside, and all of his neighbors had gathered up all of the trash people had left everywhere, and piled it all up on Mike's front lawn. LMFAO!!! He had about a four foot high pile of bottles, cans, two liter bottles, food containers.... you name it.

Well, I guess this is where Mike set himself apart from the crowd. We were kids, basically, ya know? We hadn't really given too much thought to what happened when people left the house to go home or move on to the next party. And apparently no one had said anything to Mike at this point. He knew all of his neighbors his whole life, coming home from the hospital to that house, and leaving for the morgue from that same house. So, after we loaded up all of the garbage into his truck, we made a sweep of the neighborhood to see if any was left. The place was spotless when we left for the dump. When we got back, it was around lunchtime, and Mike ducked out. We were all welcome in his house when he wasn't there, so nobody thought anything about it. Mike went to every single house in a two block radius and personally apologized for the disturbances and assured his neighbors it would not happen again. The general concensus was that no one minded his parties at all, they just didn't like the clean up that followed. From that point onward, Mike's front sidewalk had large, empty trashcans along the edge of the yard for people to dump their garbage. Mike ENFORCED that rule too. Mike was a helluva nice guy, but he was one of those guys you knew you didn't want to cross. To my knowledge, no one ever did.

Mike was 40 years old, and he will be sorely missed. He was really one of the good guys.

Travel well Mike.

Dad's side- One half sister, two step sisters from the most recent marriage, one from a previous marriage.

Mom's side- One half sister that I know of, more likely as she gave away seven kids for adoption before I was born. I only knew about two, a boy and a girl, until I was fourteen. I don't know anything about the rest.

And NO.... you may not fuck any of them!

Thanks man. Nice of you to say.

He was into buggies too, from what I heard. Had one of those giant, ridiculous looking ones with a lift kit and knobby tires on it. Truth be told, he NEEDED a big buggy. lol

It's gonna be weird going to the service. I'm going to see all kinds of people I used to consider closer than family, but haven't seen for years.

Is this how it winds up? We only get together with old friends when somebody dies?

It's just a little weird for me to process right now. I'm two years older than Mike. Kinda feeling my mortality a bit. Unsettling.

All of this is temporary.
