I had the pleasure of living across the street from Mike
during high school and he was a good neighbor and friend,
even though he tossed my clarinet out the window during
study hall and we all went to the pricipal's office!
RIP Love Kathy Kinsey

We had so much fun in "Up with People". You and your family always made me feel welcome. I was very sad to hear of your passing. You were a great guy!

Of course I was in Up With People with Mike and everyone, but my best memory of Mike was long after high school.  Mike and I we both just getting into the running hobby and we were talking about miliage and diet, he mulled it over and said to me. "When you can do over 5 miles a day, you can eat anything you want!"   Mike I got to 7 miles a day.  Rest in peace.
