Darn, that's very tough to read.

Rola76 was a valued IFisher and always seemed to have positive vibe in his posts.

Our thoughts to his family and friends.......

OMG!

That is sad beyond words.

To be taken in the absolute prime of his life... WOW... That's just too much to bear.

Based on the upbeat posts he shared here, I've always thought, "Now there's a dude I'd like to fish with someday."

So much for someday.....

I agree with Shane, gonna go home to hug my kid(s). I really need to make more of an effort to call them more often. Life is already too short as it is without a tragedy like this bringing it to an even more premature ending.

very sad to read. he seemed like a great guy and a great fisherman... sorry I never got a chance to fish along side of him..

this is a good reminder for all of us if there are guys you want to meet and fish with let them know and get out and do it. and if there are things you want to do with your familys go do it life is very short and at times shorter then we could have ever imagined..... sad reminder....

I wish his friends and family all the best in these very tough times ahead..

ps. Matt I'm so sorry to hear about your friend he will be missed.

When I met Mike last year at our tri-cities IFish get together his outgoing, joking personality stuck out among the crowd. It's to bad I never got to fish with him, but the many times we fished right next to each other was always fun!

Make shure and get those fish up there dialed in for us Mike!

This is such horrible news. It's moments like these where we need to honor the fallen, by strengthening our relationships and forget what divides us and focus on what unites us.

Sadness washes over me. I need a hug.
Gods speed.

Me to. Loved his posts.......and so full of life. I'm shocked and feel I've lost a friend I've never met.......wished we would have had the opportunity......

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family.

May God Bless them and be with them in this tragic time.

My condolences to his family and friends.

I never met him but ejoyed his participation in the board. He looks like a very young man and departed way to early.

God bless.
