Hi Chip, not sure if you're who emailed me or someone else, but yes Mike passed away and like I told you (or the person who emailed me) I felt it would be disrespectful to Mike and his family to discuss circumstances. Mike was a great guy who unfortunately was very troubled and his passing really had nothing to do with finances or the like. Just someone who felt it was 'his time'. There is much speculation into his passing and I personally feel that we simply need to pray that he is at peace. We were the first notified of his passing and I personally notified people back in the States of his untimely death. Just know that Mike had a huge heart and there were people here in Boquete that took care of him - and stil are. Best, Joy
Unfortunately, Mike decided to end his time on earth quite recently. He passed away only acouple of weks ago in his home in Caldera. I didn't know him well but I understand that, owing to the downturn in sales and failing fortunes, he had had enough.
