Mike was my cousin and we spent many times together with family during special occasions and family get togethers.  He is missed.

Sorry to hear Linda.  What was the cause of death?

Not much was ever said about how Mike died, and I did not find out  until much later.  I know that he had some heart and breathing problems, but never heard the cause.

When we were younger our families got together often for big extended family picnics and other celebrations.  Kids from both families spent time together during those years. They were great times.and good memories.    Mike and his family lived on the outskirts of White Center by Salmon Creek, so we went to different schools until Mike transfered to Highline in our Senior year.  We would meet at weddings and funerals, but outside of that we became distant cousins.

Our families are shrinking as the years go by.  Wish we would have kept in better contact.

Thank you for asking about him.
