I’ve been advised that Mike M’s funeral will be held Thursday January 3rd. If there are any Rotties in the Portland area that would like to pay their respects please email me and I will provide you the location and time.
In lieu of flowers Mike’s wife has requested that donations be made to the Wounded Warriors Project in his honor.
I’ve been thinking over the past days about what an impact Mike had on me, and on so many others, both directly and indirectly. I’m still at a loss for the proper words to do him the honor he deserves, and for that I apologize; to you, and to his family.

I don’t have your email, Crunchie. Please feel free to get it from Misha. If I can make it, I will.

I wouldn’t piss on WWP if they were on fire, and I’d just downed a case of beer.They’re anti-gun, and what do… Read more »

Perhaps another alternative might be the Marine Corps Law Enforcement Foundation, which would be doubly appropriate for Mike M.

Thank you Rurik, that was exactly what I was going to suggest for those who did not wish to contribute to WWF.
Nice save, Rurik
I was unaware of the WWP issues. Still better than flowers.
Thanks for the updates. My dad had too many friends for me to keep track of.
LC Roguetek @ #5: Sadly, you are quite correct.. This is a process that seems to have happened all too often with charities. I used to be an enthusiastic supporter of Soldiers Angels. During the first years of the GWOT it was an extraordinary charity for supporting troops … back when it was run by Holly Aho and Patti Patton-Bader… Read more »
That is the sign of a life truly well lived, and doesn’t surprise me in the least.
Thanks for the tip, Rurik. , and the rest of you. I haven’t given anything yet, so a change in plans perhaps……..?
My condolences to Mike M.’s family.
