Not the actor, but a friend of mine from college.
I just heard that he died in a small plane crash near Los Banos, CA.
I’m at a total loss for words. My condolences go out to the Aiello and DeCicco families in their time of loss.
Edit: I just received this. Chances are if you’re reading my blog, you already have this information, but just in case:
Mike’s funeral and memorial reception is going to be this Thursday, April 5 starting at 1pm in Morgan Hill. The place is still to be determined. After the funeral, there will be a party in Mike’s honor. That’s all the details I have for now. I’ll send an email with more details as plans are made.
I wish the whole thing were a nasty April Fool’s joke, but it’s not…
