Some of my best memories from living in Omaha: around the time cable t.v. (Specifically MTV and HBO) came out. Mike and I would spend hours watching tv together in “his” basement during the late 70s and early 80s on bean bags. Last summer Mike kept us entertained on the drive all the way to Toohey w/ KOC stories. He was always so easy to talk to. Thanks for all the memories Mike. I’ll miss you a lot!
Thinking of you Ralph Kstie and all the family Mike enjoyed our cabin on the Elkhorn good times we had

Please accept my condolences. We were never created to experience the pain of losing a loved one in death. But know that comfort comes from the ONE that created us and from friends and family.
