Millie,

My heartfelt condolences. Mike was a great buddy. He was, in many ways, my role model. I remember the great times in ROTC, going to jump school together, the both of you visiting my Mom, carousing around the environs of Scranton, and many, many other indelible memories. I am so sorry for your loss. I feel that I have also lost a piece of my life with Mike's passing. God bless you, Ariane, and the rest of the family.
