    Well done , Mike use to come to my cottage years ago.

    Thank you David. I have a vast assortment of tales from my long friendship with Michael, many of which can't be told publicly.

  3. David Beck says:

    Randy Michael was much younger when I lived in Lun. But he was friends with Dr. Abriel who was my neighbor and we then became friends. They got the brain wave to buy windsurfers and came for lessons at my cottage as I did it for years. I remember when he bought his new dark blue Volvo and could not wait to take me for a drive. I use to see him on TV all the time and ran into him from time to time in HRM what a waste to think he is gone.

    I've driven with Michael too, more than once, and can attest that to have done so demands no further need to prove one's bravery. A story about Michael and Dave Abriel was told to me by Michael himself shortly after it happened. Michael had some sort of back issue he wanted checked out. Lying face down in his underwear on Dave's examining table, Dave was twisting Michael's leg in assorted ways. Two large and portly men, grappling. At one point, the good Dr. Abriel stopped the twisting and said to Michael, "Do you know what we look like? Two Sumo wrestlers."
