Dear Alex and Mike's Hilltop classmates,

Bruce Harris is letting me use his password to post this comment about my dear brother.  I hope you all don't mind, but I feel I know many of you as friends even though I was a year behind. 

We lost Mike on March 18, 2015, after a brief illness that caused kidney failure.  There are no words to describe the loss that my sisters and I feel.  It was just so sudden, and he was only 69 years old.  I know that many of you will remember his woodie and surfing days, but I remember him as the big brother who always took me with him on his surfing adventures and gave me big hugs at school.  Mike worked for the City of San Diego as a landscape gardener, and he transfered that talent to his beautiful back yard. Mike still loved to surf, even though at the end he had to surf on his knees (he had neuropathy from chemo).  He loved to backpack, kayak, mountain bike, and snow ski as well. He had a heart of gold.  I just wanted to share a few of my memories of Mike.  Thank you for letting me "invade" your website.  Best wishes to you all.
