Like most of the post’ I worked with Mike at PEPCo. A good man, even tempered, jumped in to help when needed and always a pleasure to be around. Played golf with him several times came way with good memories. To borrow a line from Tagore: “ I bow to you and hold up my lamp
to light you on your way”. Be at peace Mike, we miss you. Sam
