Posted on November 13, 2013After his courageous fight with cancer, Mike passed on November 10. We thank you so much for all your support of the Amann family and ask that you please continue to participate in this fundraiser to help them in their time of need.
Below is a tribute to Mike from the "Posters & Prayers" facebook page:
We needed Mike. And, wow, we were so lucky, so unbelievably blessed, to get him. We got Mike the artist, the entrepreneur, the curator, the badass, the warrior, the man. We got Mike the brother, the father, the husband, the son, the gracious and loyal friend. We wanted more time, but Mike gave us enough to last a lifetime.
We needed him. We got him. And we'll never forget what he taught us. How to believe, create, respect, inspire and fight with supreme courage and dignity. We are all better, stronger and more inspired because of him.
Even as he was battling cancer like the warrior he was, he was working to make our community better. Adding art and spirit, building a truly unique business, inspiring communities to have vision, sharing an unbreakable love with the magnificent Lesley, and raising a baby boy to smile with such light that he'll brighten the darkest days.
We needed Mike. But he was needed more another place. A better place. Well, it's better now, for sure. Mike has already started adding color and life. He's taken Juno on a walk, looking for the next great cloud to add a mural, or maybe a pair of antlers. Tomorrow, wear a Reds shirt or doodle something funny, definitely have a taco and a beer for Mike. Then, look to the sky. Look for beauty and light. And let it make you smile. Because Mike is there.
We love you, brother. And we'll miss you forever.
