Damn... Cry    

As a newer member here, I didn't know him that well, and it's sad that I never will.

R.I.P. Mike.

First Doug's little brother and now Mike.  What a tragic day. Sad  I personally did not know Mike but from the little I did chat with him on here he was a very helpful and intelligent person.  I'm glad is obsession with video games caused him to make the best and most awesome site on the web and I'm glad I found this site.  He was always nice and witty and I wish I would have joined sooner so I could have met him sooner.  I still remember when I said to Mike what if this site goes away and he said it will never go away.  Let's keep up with his baby and may you join us in your afterlife in the chatroom.  You will truly be missed Mike.  I don't even know you and I shed a tear.  It's like my long lost brother has died.  Cry

I first met Mike way back in the old Video Game Bible days. I've never met him in person but have known him through through the sites for almost 5 years. When Mike first founded RFG he asked me to be a member of the staff. I've always been grateful for that and have really enjoyed helping him build RFG to what it is today.

I plan on continuing to help out here as well. This is a great place and it's a piece of Mike that we'll always have. Keeping it going is a great way to honor his memory.

I will always fondly remember the times I shared with Mike through RFG. I will miss you man. God Bless and RIP.

Wow...so unexpected...

I agree that we need to keep this site going.  That's what Mike would want.  My condolences to all his family and friends.  May he rest in peace.

My condolences to friends and family. I didn't know him, but enjoyed his posts and dedication to this place. It's so sad to lose anyone so young.  Sad

This message is coming from Mike's Mom -- I hope I'm doing this right.  Thank you all for your kind words about Mike -- he was very special and will be missed greatly by his family and friends.  I'm sure he's happy that so many of you plan to adopt his "baby" and keep this site alive.  One other thing that you can do that he would appreciate:  Mike's dad and I have asked Eddie (I forget his name on the site -- I think it has something to do with a pirate) to go through Mike's huge video game collection and sell most of it.  All of the money raised will be sent to an orphanage in Peru where Mike did some mission work.  Any help that you can give Eddie will be appreciated.  Thanks so much!  Pat Collins

Your first post was fine. I have told Eddie I will help sell Mike's games on various different video game sites and Ebay.

Best wishes in you time of need.

I never had the chance to meet Mike in person, but I did have the pleasure of knowing getting to know him online over the past three and a half, or four years.  Like den, first on the Video Game Bible, then here on the RFgeneration and even though I never did meet him in person I still considered him somewhat of a friend.  He was one of the nicest and coolest people I've ever known.  My condolences go out to his family and friends.  I'll miss and never forget Mike.

Tynstar -- thanks so much.  I can by some of the posts that many of you are wondering what happened with Mike.  He apparently was very upset over some things going on in his life,  and he temporarily forgot about all the people who cared so much for him, and he chose to end his life.  The police told us that it appears that he died instantly.  He's at peace now.  We really appreciate all of your prayers and kind words.  -- Pat Collins

I really have no idea what to say, but I feel the need to give my condolences to Mike's family.  While I never knew him very well, I felt this tragedy deeply.  He was a great guy.
