He was nick named”Bernie” for he had a fuzzy steering wheel cover and he accidently set it on fire. He was such a nice guy , full of life, and such a cutie. Mike, you`ll be missed and heaven has received a good fellowLove and prayers to your family and rest in peace my dear school friend. Linda (Lewis} Blair and husband Don Blair
