Just seen this as a result of "What's new at Cameraderie" email I pick up on a Monday morning.
Mike was one of those members I might conceivably have met at some point. We exchanged posts here once or twice and he lived about 25 mins drive from me, actually I used to work in a building only five minutes' walk away.
Sad news indeed :-( forums are great in one way, because they require a bit more effort to post and interact, which can be an encouragement for thoughtful posts... But then because they don't have the omnipresence of the major social media platforms, it's also easier to lose track of how people are doing. Mike will be missed, here on Cameraderie as in real life.
