After class I had to wait for the second load on bus 40. It was a long wait. And during this wait came the opportunity for all the bullys waiting also to beat the crap out of me. This all stopped when Mike who waited a long time for his ride also, came over and started talking to me and we became waiting after school friends. When I read his remembrance I could see that he was liked by many, include me on that.

Mike and I met in the Drama department and became very close friends.  We would spend hours at Jim's over a .50 cup of coffee with free refills talking about any and everything.   We had a lot of good memories at Mac and at San Antonio College.  In 1969, we (along with 3 other Mac friends) attended the launch of Apollo 11 in Cape Kennedy, traveling by car and camping out on the beach to watch the launch.  Mike was my groomsman when I got married.  LIfe sent us in different to Georgia and Mike to north Texas, where he persured his career in Television and Radio.  Those who knew Mike know he suffered with physical ailments, but never lost his spirit or smile.  I was saddened when I learned of Mike's passing.  He will be missed.
