Rest in peace.

May he rest in peace.

Take care, Admiral.

Those of you who have pics of Michael with or without themselves, it would be cool if you could send me a copy. If Jac won't mind, we could add him as VIP to our memorial page. I'd put a site together.

Added Arania's link to the main news. Look for my double post comments on the site - ah the wonders of autofilters.

:o( He was a nice guy to talk with.

I've met Mike several times and it was always a blast. He was always funny, light-hearted and ready for practical jokes. He signed nearly all and everything he got his hands onto - with the exception of that one book we could save from him at the convention. He was not only a great actor but a great friend - he will be dearly missed. :(

requiescat in pace
