Dear Anita, James, and Steven, My husband, Lewis I Brown, was so fond of Mike...always called him Rayburn. We got to know him when we rented in the upper apartment. He was so much fun to be around, great sense of humor, and Lew spent his Thursday mornings every week with Mike after we moved away. They went to breakfast, got groceries and then on to Mike's to put things away. Lew enjoyed Mike's company so much. He was a bright spot in Lew's week. Lew passed on August 22nd this year after a three year battle with cancer. They kept in touch even when Lew was not able to do their routine Thursday things. I am so sorry. I have no words. Mike was a wonderful friend to me and especially my Lew. They used to clean the barn and take care of the horses when we lived there. I will never forget Mike. He was so special to my Lew and that gives him a special place in my heart that will not leave. God Bless you and give you Peace. We loved Mike.
