    I am very sorry we lost Mike. He told me he was very ill before he moved to Vegas a few years ago. I had hoped he would stay in the Salem area longer. He wanted to spend time with his sons and said he really knew that his health was declining. Anyway, when I met him we were vendors at the Salem Saturday Market. He was creative. He crafted some fine artistic items out of Emu eggs, truly beautiful crafts. He was active in his community in the Silverton area. He had lots of friends and we will miss him. God bless you, Mike. Your friend, “Simsy”
