    My thoughts and prayers are with Mike and his family and friends. I have known Mike and worked with Mike from the later 70’s when he use to be a stock boy at F. W. Woolworth. Every time when I would drop off things at St. Vincent we would talk about the Woolworth days and the people who worked there. I would tease him about the other Mike Olson who would write comments in the paper and was more conservative and I would tell Mike then nice job and he would say that was not me. lol
    Many Packer Brewer Bucks conversations. He really knew his statistics on many sports!
    May God Bless Mike and his family!

    I just learned of Mike’s passing. He was a classmate of mine and a quiet, sweet boy who became a kind and decent man despite how he was treated in school. The world needs more like him, not less. To his family, please accept my very sincere sympathy.
