Wow sorry to hear, I will keep you and your wife in prayers. Family becomes sole focus in times like these as they should. You are a good man for stepping away from what you love to help the one you love more.

Prayers for you and your wife Mike. Loved your stories when we talked on the phone, like we were long time friends even though it was my first purchase. Glad to hear about Evan too.

Mike, as everyone else has said, I wish nothing but good health and happiness for you and your family, no matter what. I hope and pray you and your wife are able to make it through your health issues and enjoy each other for years and years to come.

On a personal level, we've known each other through Duramaxes for what now? 16 years? Over that time, we've enjoyed conversations, jokes and friendship. Sure, there have been periods where we didnt exactly see eye-to-eye, but Ill be damned if you've ever lost my respect and admiration, both for who you are as a person and for all your knowledge.
My favorite Duramax memory from all these years was Merchant's GTG back in 2007 when you and Guy were able to come. The "sheep" that really wasnt. The laughs. :LOL: I still to this day call a Ford Focus "Fycus" b/c of you two! :LOL:

Thank you for being you and for everything you've accomplished to help all of us. :)

Thanks for the memories. I feel the same about you my friend. You should have come to dinner with us that night. You would have seen what a Fycus could do with a Nascar driver ( Guy Socal ) behind the wheel. We raced Tony Martino and his Duramax for a parking space in front of the resteraunt. We had maybe 120 hp and Tony was at 500hp racing through the parking lot. I was laughing my ass off and getting pretty beat up with Guy doing some crazy shit. Last I heard was hold on and he spun the basterd backwards and landed in the parking space so perfect. Tony pulled up behind us and said " lucky " LOL Good times.
