Thanks for sharing that thread! Fun stuff. :)
Two things stood out about Mike to me:
1) Back when Paizo was publishing Dragon magazine, other editors published a couple of my articles, but he was the one who talked to me the most and worked back and forth on stuff and was excited about it even though none of it saw print. Incredibly friendly and helpful. I'm sure he wouldn't remember me a decade later, but I still remember talking with him.
2) In one of the coincidences that make you pause and feel a bit more mortal on a day like today, I believe we shared a birthday (or at least within a day) and he was exactly 1 year younger than me.
However, I followed his blog and there was a post I think from a year or two ago where he mentioned that he had actually achieved every long term goal he had. His life was still far too short, but he apparently did live it well.
My condolences to his friends and family. This has to be devastating.
