    We are SO sorry to hear of Mike’s passing. He and Ezra were such a huge part of our success at Quincy Senior High, helping us to design, edit, print and deliver such quality programs for events over many years! It was always a joy to see Mike arrive with the program boxes, knowing that our event was about to really happen! Always so professional and understanding of flexible high school schedules! Our condolences to his entire family! May your memories be a blessing during this difficult time! 🙏😔

    Mr. Blue,
    Thank you so much for help in raising me. I don’t know if Brian, Els, Chris or me would have stayed out of trouble if it weren’t for you. For always being our No. 1 supporter during our softball and basketball years and putting up with our high school shenanigans. You were firm yet fair and encouraging always and I love you for that. I’m not saying goodbye, I’m saying see you soon. I love you.
