Today is a very sad day. My name is Leah Tidler, a friend who went to George Mason University with Mike Smith! Yesterday we all lost a friend, Morgan lost husband and BEST FRIEND, who loved her so very much.  Mike was the most kind & lovable soul you would be so honored to call him a friend.  I am starting this fund to help the family out with the costs and to show our support to Mike and his family.  This was such an unexpected and horrible loss for all of us, Mostly to his AMAZING wife.  She told me that "Mike LOVED his friends and respected us all."  Whatever you can offer would be amazing and the family will appreciate any and all.  I know personally I am very sad because when I was having a bad day I know I could count on Mike posting some hilarious stuff that would make me smile .  Arrangements are being made and evryone will be posted.  What a LOSS for all! Thank you your your love and Support to his wife and family and friends..... He is seriously unreplaceable!!  GONE TOO SOON!! :(

Sadly last Monday while gathering the last items we'd need for our destination family Thanksgiving at the Outer Banks of NC, we got the call no one wants. Our son, Michael, suffered a massive sudden fatal heart attack sitting in his car in his driveway. We were all stunned and broken, and since then we've just tried to be together seeking comfort and peace. Here's what my husband, his dad, had to say:
I am Michael's dad. For those who didn't know our son Michael, here is a synopsis:
Michael could walk into a room full of strangers and in about 20 minutes, everyone knew his name. He loved and cared about people and people normally were attracted to him. It didn't matter who you were or what your role in life might be.
Michael had a wit like no other. He knew just what to say when you were feeling down and most of the time you would end up walking away with a smile on your face. You could see this through his Facebook posts. He wrote this on Nov 12 just after the contentious election:
"Cake, delicious wonderful cake. Can we all at least agree that cake is fantastic"
I didn't see some of his friends responses but Mike posted back this reply:
"Let me guess...you like pie!

Thank you to everyone who has shown their support in this way. Remember, anything helps.... And Mike would always help friends in NEED... Please share with your friends too and add some of your favorite times with Mike. Mo is so very grateful. I can only imagine how hard this is for her, but I know our "village" will lift her up during this very sad sad time. Thanks Again ... and feel free to ask other friends even if they didn't know Mike.

Loved Mike, made going to work each day so much more enjoyable. If I were a religious man I would say God took Mike because he was too good for this world. RIP Mike.
