I haven't seen Mike in a long time but had some good times with him in my "Oneonta" days. Hanging out at the Fox and listening to his band. Always a good time. I always wished I had his natural talent for music. RIP and prayers and thoughts for your family through this tough time.

I remember Mike way back when I was a little kid.....We never got to really know each other....But his Grandpa Haines was my uncle. My dad and his grandfather were brothers.....And they were 22 years apart....My dad was old enough to be his son...How about that even back then...RIP Michael...I LOVE YOU !!!!!!!!!!!!
