Mike and I were best friends since grammar school. Most of the time we were long distance best friends, After high school we went to different schools, were in different services, and in different careers in different areas of the country. Didn't matter; we were brothers. Mike was at my graduation from the Academy in 1970. He was in uniform and was the first enlisted man to salute me as a new 2nd Lieutenant. Per tradition. that meant I owed him one dollar (traditions were inexpensive back then). When I last saw him, shortly before his passing, he gave me another final salute. I cannot convey how important those two events are to me. I miss my best friend and brother.

Pete, as I knew him, Mike to his family, and I went all through St. Joseph school and Bristol Central High School together. We shared an interest in cars and he was instrumental in my fascination with sportscars in our early years. We were neighbours all through school too as I lived on High Street less than a block from his home on Goodwin Street. Although we had not been in contact in recent years I still considered him a good friend. The news of his death was unexpected and very upsetting to me as I hadn't been aware that he was ill.
