I have nothing but good things to say about Mike
To his family, my sincere condolences.
This week, strangely enough, l was thinking about Mike, and how l respected him, because he challenged me in hs. He never backed down in bball practice senior yr and always challenged me at practice.
When he came back from the service, I had a chance to play against him down at the lake gym. He came back a man and was sll about showing me his skills!
I was impressed!! Never saw him again....
RIP Mike

Mike came from good stock. I remember the Tichenors as being good people, Mike included. The time I spent at his house gave me a respite from the hell I was going through as a child. It's a shame to see good people gone when we are in such dire need of them. The list doesn't seem to be getting any shorter, either. Be nice if we could get it to turn around and go the other way.
