My deepest sympathies to the Saner family. I worked for Mike many years ago. He was a great man and was easy to respect. He taught me lessons that dramatically improved my professional and personal life. He will be missed. From Eric Haskins

I am sorry for your loss, Saner family..... I went to ST.Patricks Academy in Imogene with Mike in his grade. He was a great kid and a lot of fun in school. He is a cousin, but with so many not sure which. My grandmother was Bertha Saner Regan. He will be missed, loved seeing his 'stuff' on facebook... Lila Hughes Breedlove
