So I’m just starting a new job and one of the guys knows Mike from back in the day. Turns out the guy was there when the dog ate the end of Mike’s thumb. Mike asked the guy to kill the dog so they could get the end of his thumb back. Guy couldn’t do it. Mike says I would of killed the dog for you, Man. He had a higher standard of friendship than most.

Hi Tom - Wow, what a small world, and what a story...! Sounds like Mike's sense of humor. Mike couldn't kill a mouse. When we had mice immigrating into our house during a neighbor's renovation, I had to lay and dispose of the traps....ha!

We have a daily reminder of Mike in our Brooklyn garden: the hen house he built in three hours that would have taken us three days. We're getting a small plaque with Mike's name on it for The Palace. Everybody says Mike could build anything, but I'll bet we're the only ones who got a Mike Kokiko chicken coop!
