Message:  ...and what a bunch of great memories I have from getting to be around Mick (it all came about as sort of a providential "accident")

...my favorites are based on the fact that he was just a sweet, normal guy who loved his friends and really, really loved his family...he regularly reminded us of his love for his "girls"

His "profundity" was home-spun, based on love, grounded in the normality that we all share, but cannot quite put into words... only guys like him are able to do that...what a gift.

I think every one of us who got to be around him have stories/memories of him that make us grateful that we were able to share in his wit, humor, love and weirdness...

what a guy
