Congrats Mike on your 40 years in the real estate business. In my 33 years in the real estate business I always enjoyed our chats about business and our families when I would see you doing chores at your home when I was out for one of my walks--it was all good for sure. You and your children did a wonderful and meaningful memorial service for your wife Adrienne less than 2 years ago--it was a powerful and showed you and your children's love for her and also showed her tremendous caring that she gave to all of her patients in her role of a registered nurse. Best of love to you and your family and one day down the road you can salute the "real estate flag" and join me in a well deserved retirement.
