Yes, great thing!
I’m sure there is a wealth of drums and cymbals that he has, if someone who is near his family could help sell it (if they want to) it would help financially.
I know I would love to have a piece of his gear as a keepsake, just saying!

Very good idea, a friend of my family passed away unexpectedly recently, although he had insurance there were many nickel and dime costs that hit the family... at a time like this a family has been through enough shock already. I have no idea what Mike's situation is but this is a very nice gesture for the family and says a lot about how well Mike was thought of and also the quality of folks who frequent this forum.

I have a Pioneer that you sold me. He stripped it and refinished it for me. He said pay me what you want. I over paid I think, and he was appreciative. What a good guy he was.
May he RIP
