Deeply sorry God bless you

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.
