Very touching John and Greg. I find myself coming back to this thread, reading all the condolences and crying again. Mike is missed and leaves a void here in the forum, it was a big part of his daily life.
As nice as Mike was, he once messaged me about some noob he was trying to help and asked me to step in. The OP had riled him a "little" and he said he'd get banned if he posted his true thoughts. I loved working with Mike.

It is with great sadness to me, to hear of Mike's passing, and tears of remembrance have occurred every time I think of it.
Although I was not a close friend of his, I remember back when he joined 7Forums and in conversation with him, I knew him to be an honorable man, and as Gary has said; "he is missed and leaves a void".
In astronomical terms there will be a "Super Moon" this Sunday June 23 at 7:32 a.m. EDT. Because of the time frame it will not be visible to me at that precise moment, but in the moments before, and the days ahead when I view this "super moon", I will think of "Hoppy and Topper" and know they are in a better place and awaiting the loves of their lives.
The Cowboy's Prayer
This is the poem used By Roy Rogers at all his riders club meetings.
Oh Lord, I reckon I'm not much just by myself.
I fail to do a lot of things I ought to do.
But Lord, when trails are steep and passes high,
Help me ride it straight the whole way through.
And when in the falling dusk I get the final call,
I do not care how many flowers they send --
Above all else the happiest trail would be
For You to say to me, "Let's ride, My friend."
