Just found out via facebook that Mike was found deceased at his home a few hours ago via a friend of his with a New Age shop in Glastonbury. :cry:

Shocked. Could believe it when I saw the post on FB.
He was a great bloke and will be missed.

Last time I saw a post he was in Malta, learning Maltese; not an easy language.

He was due to fly to Malta on holiday on 27th Dec but said he'd not been feeling well since the weekend so he'd postponed it. That was the last post he made, his friend said he was found deceased at home but I don't know when or how he died.
