Mike and I go back to around 1990 while we both lived in Atlanta. I am another of his "radio friends" signing farewell here but we were quite good and personal friends back in that decade. I enjoyed the privilege of being a part-time employee of his of sorts, doing a lot of handyman and gardening type work for him. Even then Mike was semi-retired and got to enjoy a great deal of fun in his life and the sometimes extravagant memories of those days I will always count as among the favorite times of my life. I think I could write a small book trying to describe the Life and Times and Shenanigans of Mike Adams & Co. and a mostly good time was had by all. I loved Mike. Mike is hyper-intelligent, insanely funny, generous to a fault, a culinary connoisseur/foodie, a beer drinking buddy .... a Loyal Friend. Irascible and Irreplaceable - I so will look forward to hopefully enjoying many more Big Laughs with Mike on the next world :-)

I just read of the passing tonight and thought, what would it be that i could say or write? Surely the voice cannot utter the true feelings of the heart nor the hand and quill write of it; Thus again God has fulfilled his promise to the great Mother and hath presented her with his most sacred gift; a boundless drop of water to a boundless sea. Farewell my 'ole friend......de KC4QVA

This was a unique group of ham radio operators late at night and would talk about different subjects.

I am truly sorry for your loss. I pray that you find comfort in Jehovah(Psalms 83:18) and the comfort only he and Jesus can provide during these times (2Corinthians 1:3,4). I know that Jehovah is anxious to reunite you with your loved one soon into a time where there will no longer be any pain, suffering or death (Revelations 21:3,4)
