I am so sorry to hear of Mikes passing. He was truly a wonderful person and I enjoyed seeing him on my morning stops for coffee and my lunch time visits over the years. You don't pass the Collamer Stop & Shop without thinking of Mike, a fitting tribute to a fine man.

Many hearts share your sadness Shelly. Mike was a rare gem and a bright light in the world. Asking God to cover you with His feathers and comfort you as only He can.

I was a sales rep many years ago and fondly remember Mike at Sunrise and then at Collamer. Such a true gentleman and kind person. Always looked forward to coming to the store. So very sorry for your loss.
