‘I’m actually kicking myself. He text me, and I didn’t actually reply just because I’m really bad on my phone.
‘I think you just overthink everything, about what you do. I just wish I had replied. He just said, “How’s it going, how are you?” And I didn’t reply.’
Sending our condolences to Mike’s friends and family at this heartbreaking time.
