I knew Mike from out Golden Chain days, long ago. That smile, that laugh....you could hear it backstage when you were on. LOL. He truly was professional and commited to his craft. I'm deepley sorry for his loss to his family. I actully ran into Mike the week before this happened. It had been at least seven years since I'd seen him. I got to talk about old times and hug him goodbye. It truly was, and I'm glad I did. Break a Leg.

I lived in Oakhurst for just under two years in the mid 90s. Mike and I became workout buddies at the gym and eventually good friends. I didn't have many friends outside of the company during my brief stay and Mike, with his great smile and special light, took pity on me and honored me with his freindship. He was a great friend and taught me some life lessons that resonate with me till this day. I used to tease him that he looked like David Cassidy - which he ate up with a spoon, of course. I've missed Mike since thoughs days and I'm stunned and teary eyed to learn (today) that he's no longer with us. It's hard to say good-bye, Mike. I'll never stop missing you.

I visit Mike's website that his sister Teri so lovingly created for his memory, and a place for those who were blessed to know him to share their feelings & stories. My children referred to Mike as "the Mountain Man". They were only around 4 & 6 when this guy rang the doorbell and when he entered did the..."HELLOOOOO" (Mrs. Doubtfire imitation). I told him he had to wear a wig, makeup and high heels next time!! (yeah right!). When I got home from his Memorial in Coarsegold, obviously sad, and even angry - how could this happen? My son who was only 6 1/2 asked if I brought back any souvenirs? I looked at him, mildly confused....He said....what about a bow and arrow? Now, that made me smile...and probably made Mike laugh. I had the pleasure of hearing Lance Canales recently. He is the Native American "musician" who honored his "Native Brother" with his gift of a traditional tribal farewell, and of course his music. He asked how his family was doing, and said he holds them gently in his heart. He never knew Mike, but that is part of the "culture" Mike embraced. I truly see why. His website is www.blackoakrecords.com, just an fyi. It is so true, the love and memories each of us have keep him so alive in our hearts. I have never believed in "Goodbyes", only in "I'll see you when I see ya!". Love & Light to every person whose lifewas touched by a guy named, Mike Sullivan. Nik

It's taken me this long since Mike's passing to write on here. I have lost many people in my life, and odd as it seems to me, Mike's passing affected me probably more than any of them. I had fallen out of touch with Mike over the years, but have always had a particular fondness for him. When I read his obituary in the Fresno Bee, I felt as if my heart had been ripped from my body. I carried his obit with me for a few weeks, looking at it every day, and remembering what a phenomenal person Mike was. He ALWAYS had a huge smile on his face, kind words for me and everyone else, and one of the first guys I remember throwing his arms around me for a hug. (Tough to do when you're a teenager.) There hasn't been a day since I read that obit that I haven't thought about Mike. Strange that it took the passing of a very good, very old friend to really look at my life, and make me realize that I have to suck the marrow from the bones of it. Mike, I, like everyone else here, will miss you forever. See you before too long!

family and friends are in my silent prayers to Jesus. Mike, you made me wake up and start thinking more about the reasons for life. Since your passing, I decided to donate more time to the less fortunate people in this world. I live right by wear the accident took place, sometimes when I pass I see the scene as it were the day it happend. I wish that I could of been there for you, next to you. Holding you and telling you to hold on for me and your family
