Mike took my course at the end of October this year.
We took a break for trick-or-treating, and he helped hand out candy to kids who came by our house.
He was kind, funny and thoughtful. My kids loved him, and loved playing with him.
He said one of the things he was looking forward to about working in California was that he could try to build up his swooping skills more. He definitely died while living his life on his own terms, doing what he wanted.
Mike 'Fudd' was one of the guys who packed into my car when we drove down to Zhills a few years ago. He was tall and had to sit in the front seat of my Focus, while 3 other guys were squished in the back...it was a tight fit for all us and not very confortable at all for a long drive to Zhills...but we managed to get a bunch of laughs the entire ride down.
Hard to believe we wont have an opportunity to do things like that again with you Fudd.
