I have felt the lasting impressions of few. My dad has this effect, as does some past figures from my past who I look up too and cherish the memories. But none of them have had an impact like Mike has. Even before his passing, Mike had great positive influence on me, and I on him, I would hope :)

I have an immense sadden feeling that I will not have the chance to say good-bye to my friend in the proper way. I will go along with any decisions the family takes, and I urge everyone to do the same. But, it would bring me, and, I think, a lot of Mikes' friends great closure and great happiness to see him off
together. In any case. I still feel mike with me. I almost lost it at a bar last night, thinking about him. FUCK.

Mike's mom wrote me this message. I am not sure if its right or wrong to post it, but Mike was always about, FUCK IT and DO IT ANYWAY.


  • Ulric...for some reason I didn't get your last message. We would have been delighted to have you visit, but there was no way we would have been able to get Mike's things from the Fisculia. To this moment, we do not have them. We are hoping that the Embassy will have them soon. Just two minutes ago I sent the request for the Fisculia ( police ) to release his body to the local funeral home. Now, all the arrangements have to be made about shipping Mike back here & whatever has to happen here before any cremation can take place. The reason for his death was heart failure & pulmonary edema from exerting at such a height 10,000 feet above sea level....without taking time for his body to adjust. This is such a sad loss.

    Anyway, I don't know when we will be able to schedule the cremation, nor have we discussed as a family if we will keep this private. However, we will have a memorial service for Mike & we will hold it in that beautiful place I posted on Mike's FB page.

    Meanwhile, if you would like to write a message to Mike that will be cremated with him, I know he would like that. Send it to me & it will be placed with his body before cremation. I know he loved you as a brother.

    Also...if you can....spread the word about the letters for Mike. I'll need them as soon as possible. I will be in touch with you & I thank you for everything. eliz Mike's Mom

For Marin and Jai

"Among the last leaves that fall, inherent in their wake, we leave traces that surpass all and surprise many.

We travel a distance unknown, but cater to the living with close ties and are soon to be reunited in a far off land of immeasurable enchantment.

We all dance our last dance alone, but we all hold hands together, forever." Ulric Rousseau
