On November 8th LA's niece had a new baby boy. November 24th the niece's paternal grandfather passed away.
Mike has been battling cancer for a number of years. He knew that there was not too much the doctors could do for him because of the positions of the tumor. He lived as independently as he could, fighting those who wanted to make things easier for him, because it took away that independence. Not long ago he sold him home, and moved into a center.
He is with his wife Joan now who passed a number of years ago. May they both travel in peace.
