    It will feel so weird to not see his posts.

    It seems like our complete puzzle is now missing an important piece. :sorry:

    My thoughts are with his family. :sorry:

    I don't come here very often, but I knew Mick on another forum also. It's such a shock to hear that he has passed, and he will surely be missed. My thoughts are with his family and all of his friends at this very difficult time.

    i still cant believe it

    i dont like that one minute someone is here and the next there gone

    it makes you realise how precious life is and that you should never take anything for granted

    it has definately made me think tonight

    "So love the people who treat you right. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands. If it changes your life, let it. Forgive quickly. God never said life would be easy."

    I just heard this news elsewhere . I can not express how very sad this has made me feel :cry1:
    Mick made me laugh out loud several times, but the one I remember most was the time he said he bought his wife Denise a bag for Mother's Day, a new vacumn cleaner . :lol:
    He was a dear, sweet friend and my heart is truly aching right now .
    Since my DH has COPD, we spoke often through PM's of his health issues .
    I had no idea that it had gotten to the point of him needing double transplants .
    I'm sure he's not only talking to Steve , but Walt as well . Telling him all about his dream and how huge it has become, new parks, DVC, cruises, etc .
    Makes me so sad that he never made it back to WDW , I was going to ask, but Brit answered that reading through the posts .
    My thoughts & prayers are with Denise, his children and his family .
    RIP Mick, I will never forget you . :redroses:

    :sorry:Just saw this and I am indeed shocked and saddened. I know he was very ill but i truly believed that the surgery was going to give him time. we talked on several occassions about illness and my heart goes out to him. You fought with courage and bravery mick, if I do make it it this December to AKL you will be there in my thoughts and prayers. My heart goes out to your family.May it be all that you want it to be.:hug2:

    I was deeply saddened to hear about Mick's passing. Due to lack of funds and no chance of US holidays over the last few years, I've not been active on any of the Disney forums, here and elsewhere, for a long time, but have had text chat and joke exchanges with Mick almost weekly (sometimes daily) until his last message, last week. I'll miss his warped sense of humour, his wonderfully non-PC jokes and his extremely warm personality enormously. God bless you, Mick, RIP mate.

    I came back here this morning hoping this wasn't real, I'm stunned.

    Mick was indeed immensely proud of his family, through his posts we could feel it shining through.

    Denise, Lauren and Mikey...I'm thinking of you and hope you know how proud he was of you all xxx :hug2::hug2::hug2:

    I didn't sleep well last night, I was thinking about Mick, the way he always made people laugh and often groan with his silly jokes. How he remained so upbeat and positive when there were so many things to keep knocking him back all the time. His love of Disney and how he was planing his holiday, how much he loved his family and how proud he was of his Lauren and Mikey, the list goes on :sigh:

    When he became ill and was in hospital all those years ago, he had so much trouble getting help, we spent days and hours getting things just right so that in the end, he finally got the help he needed. We never met but we spoke often in good times and bad, he was a good listener was our Mick and I'll miss him :sigh:

    I can't remember how many years I've known him, but I am so glad that I was lucky enough to call him a friend.

    Mick wouldn't want us to be sad, he's probably somewhere now, getting together everyone who shares his love of Disney and starting his own site.

    So for now, until we meet him again, wherever we go, whatever we do, Mick will be with us all, he'll get his trip back to the Mouse, not just once, but many, many times when his friends here go back. He won't ever be forgotten, he has touched too many lives for that to happen :cry2:

    I still can't believe this sad news is true, I was never lucky enough to meet Mick in person but I spent many hours chatting online and via text.
    I knew he was unwell but didn't think this would happen.
    He will be sadly missed by all.
    RIP Dear friend, say hello to Walt for me.

    I cant believe what im actually reading, to say im shocked is a complete understatement :(

    I first starting talking to Mick back in about 2004 i think it was, i liked him alot - he added me to his mailing list and since then i received alot of emails - some which left me explaining to my husband why i was receiving jokes like that from someone i had never actually met!!! :lol:

    Your memory lives on Mick, you were a truely wonderful person and im proud to say that you were my friend - you are going to be very much missed around here. My thoughts are with his family and many other friends

    RIP Nutty :hug2:

    Such terribly sad news. As I said on FB I hope you our people watching on a bench somewhere. I never met Mick either,but that doesn't make him less of a friend. He was technical whizz and always offered to help with any issues. He was a cheeky one to and always ready to fight For Mr Gates and the right to recline. RIP Mick and thank you for blessing our cyber lives. Xxx

    I've been away from this forum for a few weeks and am very shocked to learn that mick has passed away.
    He and his family only live 10 mins away and it would have been lovely to meet him. I am sure he will be very missed.
    Love to Micks family at this tough time :hug2: :hug2:

    I've been off line for a few weeks and I'm shocked to hear of the loss of Mick. Mick helped me through a pretty tough time last year and even this year he was a star to me despite his illness.

    Of course I was never lucky to meet him in person in this life but I'll make damn sure I'll meet him in the next.

    All my love Mick.
