Im truly saddened to hear Mike has left us. I likened him to a cat. Just when you thought his time was over, he would surprise by picking himself up and soldiering on. But in the end, a cat only has nine lives.

It has been my absolute pleasure to serve you both over what must be more than 15 years. The old bugger could be grumpy, but he had a big heart. He always treated me with the upmost respect.
