For many years, Mike served as the office assistant at Lorch and Associates. He did his best work while snoozing in the sun behind the monitor on Rhonda’s desk. You could always count on him to arrive late for work, disappear for hours on end, let you know when it was time to eat, and to cover everything in cat hair. Rest in peace old boy.
