Since about 1970, Mike and grew up together. I spent many a day in Lanski home, joking with Mike, dad Ronald, and mom Sandra, sister Cheryl, Uncle Joe, and CedarChip, Mike's pet gerbil (or hamster.) Through grammar school, Jr. High, and high school Mike and I hung out. In High School, we participated in theater crew together and together, partnered to design the set for the annual Pow-Wow show our Senior year. As my Best Man at my wedding, Michael gave a terrific speech where he incorporated Disney lingo and was very clever. I will miss Mike's off beat humor and most of all, I will miss Mike's friendship. Rest in Peace. His memory is a blessing.
