The other picture. After racking my brain since yesterday (for someone who can't remember the Super Bowl winner or a previous meal), I thought it might have been an anniversary topic on the GJ.

Sure enough, the search function does work over there.  After combining his screen name and the correct words.

Nice picture with his wife and car, though sad at the same time.

I've only chatted with him online, but he seemed like a really nice guy. My condolences to his family. RIP Mike.

On the passing of old friends, one gets to thinking about the things you once shared and talked about.   Also the things you always wanted to ask, and now may never get the answer for.  Do it while you can.

Sucks to hear. Seemed like a straight shooter the few times I interacted with him.

I hate that I'm late in seeing this. He will be missed. RIP Chopper

What?!  I just spoke with him about a month ago!!!!

Since joining this site, Mike has been awesome to me.  We've exchanged a few notes here and there in the mail, after I first bought a few ratchets from him about a year and a half ago.  It was unique that someone would do that with a nearly perfect stranger.

He was a pretty cool guy.
