    Relationship: old friend

    Mike and I have been friends since I was 16 years old, more like a brother than just a friend, he taught me a lot. Will miss him

  • Danny Lynn
    Relationship: good friend, co-work

    We only have a few good friends and Mike truly was. Whenever I would visit Cincinnati he'd come up from GA. Also a few trips to see me in Montana. Mike was easy to talk to and a good listener. We shared a love of music like David Bromberg and Mose Allison and many others I'm grateful to know Mike Serena....

    Relationship: Best friend

    You can't have more than one best friend and because Mike was mine, I never needed another. We were friends for more than half a century, during which time we shared many laughs, songs, narrow escapes, and a wee dram or two. The heart that pumps my blood is doing fine but the heart that is the center of my emotions has a huge gaping hole in it that will never be patched up.
