I love this picture of Mike. This was taken in 2003 at our friend Jean Marie's annual wine party. Mike drank beer. In this picture is my girlfriend Melinda and our friend Brian. Mike and Melinda loved each other. Melinda and I always joked with Mike that we were going to buy a house with a guest house on the property for Mike. I only just spoke to him about this two weeks ago, the last time I spoke to him. I loved the fact that Melinda and Mike got along so well...sometimes I felt like the third wheel. We used to joke and call him our adopted son.
