Mike Stevens and I are what I call "forever friends." We don't see each other regularly, we went for decades without talking, yet when I do see him or visit with him, I'm immediately comfortable. We've reconnected on Facebook, and have known each other since we were five and six. We grew up in the same neighborhood in La Palma, California. Something I have always been able to say about Mike, he's NICE – just plain nice. I don't recall he was ever mean to anyone, didn't cheat anyone – although he has a wicked sense of humor. I trust him.
