    Dear Misty and family, My sincere condolences to you and your family on your loss. Mike was a good friend and a very bright spirit. He enriched my life and will be deeply missed. I am sending a letter to you via USPS Express mail (to Mike’s address) with some memories and photos. I hope it will reach you in case you might want to use any of it in the service. With prayers and much love, Russ Mason

    Dear Misty & sons,
    I want you to know of my sadness in the loss of Mike, your Dad & Grandfather; one of my TCC classmates. He was a guy who could bridge the gap between the differences in people. I hope you can all be strong, like he’d want you to be, taking one day at a time.
    Love 💕 & Thoughts are with you,

    Dear Misty & family,
    I am so very sorry for your loss. Mike was one of the best men I ever knew, and I will always feel honored to have been his friend. Thank you so much for including the photo from my wedding in the slide show (I’m the guy in the vest). I’d love to have a copy if that is possible, after things settle down of course.

    Dear Misty & family, I was never able to consistently keep up w/my pursuit of Taiji within the STL assoc. But the spirit of warmth and generous sharing of knowledge in our TUE 6:30 classes by Mike and ‘coach’ Kelly will remain in my heart and mind. Oddly, just prior to Mike passing, I noticed in his FB-Bio that we were in SPGF MO, Southwest MO State during the SAME time period. I deeply regret not being able to compare notes with him about that time in our lives. Sincerest condolences, Bill Moehl

    I am so sorry to hear of Mike’s passing. I just learned of this today. He was a great inspiration. So positive! I had the pleasure of meeting him at Ben Lo’s workshop a few years ago. He was so friendly and funny and sharing and easy to get to know. It must have been great having him in your tai chi family. My condolences to his family.
