    I am so sorry for your loss. I only knew Mike a little while, when I had my thrift store in North Branch. He was such a nice guy, who helped more people than anyone i know. Deanna may god bless you and your family.

    Mike was a big part of my life growing up in Forest Lake…he was a light hearted fun guy who never failed to make us laugh. School was never boring when we had classes with Mike!
