I am so VERY sorry to hear of Mike's passing! He was a good friend.

We worked together at Advocate for 10 years.

While living at Baie Verte, I had a boat built, and Mike cut two spruce sticks, from which he hand chopped a set of Paddles for me. Later. We moved to Grand Falls, and while driving along Lind Ave., looking for me, he recognized the boat in my driveway, and came to visit.

We had many enjoyable trips together.

Regards,

George and Ruby White
