  5. I remember the day I met Mike. We were signing in for pee-wee football. Mike walked up to me and said “Hi I’m Mike Briggs, I just moved here from Houston to live with my grandparents.” Although Mike was of a reserved nature, he was never shy about meeting a stranger. We were roommates for several years, he was always courteous and respectful, especially when I would have Scott and Dana for the weekend. Mike was one of my best friends and I will always have fond memories of the good times we shared. Rest in Peace Mike and I’m a little jealous that you got to see Tom Precht and Peter Guinn before me!
