My deepest condolences goes out to mike,s immediate family. I am a neighborhood friend and classmate of mike,s. So I grew up in the same neigborhood playing basketball in the alleyway and getting into mischief. A lot of us classmates made a committment before we graduated from high school with Uncle Sam. So as much as it both frustrated and hurt me of the news of his death. I respected mike,s choice in being homeless. So when I see him on the street or at the Libraury I would talked to him about good old days long ago. Then before I left I would always give him some cash to get something to eat. He always seem to be in a good sense of humor and positive. However, I know he is happy and with his parents in heaven! Sincerely, Peter and Lisa Clark

I was heartbroken to hear Mike had passed. Such a kind man. I don't know many people in Janesville after living here for two decades, but I knew Mike. I spend a lot of time at the library and was blessed to have met Mike and see him there regularly. He was a pleasure to talk with. My condolences to the family. Mike, you will be missed.
