Mike was one of the good guys in fandom. We weren't close friends, but he always had a smile and pleasant greeting.
ETA My most recent photo of Mike, from 2007, on Facebook.
I'm so glad I got this shot. I asked if I could take his picture, and he said no. But I cajoled him into it. And he and his wife, the next in the series.
A motto of mine is becoming a mantra: I only regret the pictures I don't take.
