Mike left us unexpectedly this week after years of learning to live with serious medical conditions. In addition to his other challenges, but unknown to Mike, he also had an advanced heart problem. Through it all, Mike maintained his sense of humor and positive outlook. He worked on his many projects, and to Karen’s frustration, frequently acquired new ones. He supported his local sailing club, went schooner racing every summer in Nova Scotia until he couldn’t, and set about restoring a vintage VW Beetle for Karen. The Savannah Table depended on Brother “Broomlip” to manage our funds as Purser, and for a time he also took on the job of Scribe. In recent years he applied his considerable expertise to boiling lobsters, making our fall Lobster Dinner the success it was. Mike and Karen constantly opened their home to the Table. The Savannah Table is blessed with a lot of heart, one of the biggest lived at 32 Brightwater Drive in Thunderbolt, Georgia. He will be greatly missed.
