Sending you my thoughts and prayers. I worked with Mike when he was at Time Warner Cable and saw what a bright light he was. It took a great effort to recreate himself as a positive life coach/ speaker and it was certainly his calling. I would read his posts and think to myself- this man gets the basic life lessons we need to focus on- Positivity, Love, family and being true to one's self- God rest.... thomas mezzaqpella, September 15, 2021 I know that I didn’t know him well..but I know that he was an amazing, kind hearted person..i don’t really now what to say..I just know that I pray for your family. Love you
