Was so saddened to hear of Mike's passing. So sorry for your loss Sue. We had a lot of great times back in the days of The Crystal Creek Band. I played town team basketball against Mike and he forever gave me a hard time. Every time I would check into the game he would holler out "I've got Johnson". He was a great guy and I will miss him. Prayinf for you and your family.
