Mike, my good friend and pinstriping mentor. I will deeply miss our conversations, laughs, and times spent together. You taught me so much, almost everything I know when it comes to slinging paint. We fellow gear heads will always have a spot for you beside us along our journeys. Until me meet again, my friend.

I'm so saddened to hear of Zig's passing. Too young, my friend. We met playing darts at the Wood Street Cafe 30 years ago, and were great buds ever since. I will miss you at the racetrack. Glad you are free of all the pain. See you again someday. Condolences to Mike's family.
