Wow, people pass away all the time. But it's always a shocker when it's someone you know. My deepest condolences to the family.

Yes, he was only 34

Re: *** Mike "MPD" a dear friend, has passed away ***

I just got the phone call also. Mike was a great guy. It is almost unbelieveable; I am still in shock by it.

You truly never know...

RIP Grizz.

My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

I know if Mike was here he'd give everyone the GDC salute.

If they do one of those slideshows at his service, I hope the montage is full of pics of Mike giving the salute. I know he'd want it that way

Holy shit. I just got a message from Deb and I couldn't make out much more than Mike. My deepest sympathy to his family.

Re: *** Mike "MPD" a dear friend, has passed away ***

John please keep us updated. If there will be a benefit ride or dedication please let the site know so those who can attend will know when and where to go. Please tell his family that he was a beloved friend and that he was part of so many lives.

Damnit.

It didn't really sink in at first. Now I'm having trouble holding my shit together. I wish I had gone to the squid farm meet. I know I'll regret not going forever now. For not calling just to say hi.

Guys, don't wait till tomorrow to spend that extra moment with someone who means something to you, whether it be a friend, family, or significant other. We never know when it will be the last time.

Unbelievable... My condolences to friends and family. Mel, our differences aside I really feel bad for you, I know you two were close. Keep your head up. May he ride in piece. We'll miss you Grizz.
