    So so sorry to hear this. Mike and I had so many good times over the years. He was always good for a comment. Sometimes witty, sometimes thoughtful and sometimes opinionated. I regret that I did not reach out to him in a stronger manner in recent years. I have missed and now must miss what was once a great friendship.

  2. Mike Wing says:


    I am so sorry. What a blessing it was to be Mike’s friend and the happy memories are many, from hiking and camping (it usually rained) to fishing with our sons in Florida. Of course the long discussions on every topic are the fondest memories of all. I am having a glass of good bourbon in honor of our forty year friendship. I think he would approve.

    He constantly mentioned how fortunate he was to have you by his side. May the the good memories be a blessing to you in this sad time. He was a good man.

    With sadness and warm regards to you and the family.

    Mike Wing

    To the family of Mike, I am so very sorry to learn of his passing. I only knew Mike via Facebook and I quickly grew fond of his wit. We both shared a love of photography too.
