So sorry to hear about Mike's passing. I "met" Mike and Shirley over 30 years ago while sending flowers through their shop, and then later, in person, at Flower Shows and FTD Conventions. I loved our conversations about the flower shop business and enjoyed his beautiful work, knowing that whatever I ordered, he would produce (and as a floral designer, I am picky!!). He, as a person, and his many talents, will be missed. Prayers for his loved ones.
