    I have not seen Mike in a long time, but I will never forget him. He was one heck of a horseman and storyteller, a friend, and sure was a lot of fun. We had many good trail rides, and Mike worked on our horse farm in VA, and later in OK, working side by side with us and the kids. Gone but never forgotten. May he rest in peace.
