    Mike will truly be missed in our industry.
    He was the guy I called whenever I had a question “Mike, what do you think this Valentine’s will be like, should I order more or less roses?” and he would share it all; always willing to help a fellow florist.
    Our Milwaukee Metro Co-Op Pool meeting will not be the same without you, I will miss your humor and banter.
    Thank you, Mike, for all your advice over the years.
    -Melissa Maas, Bank of Flowers
