So sad to hear this. I stopped in at Picture Show Gallery before the Tikiyaki show on Saturday. I was told that the news was bad. Mike will be missed.

Mike created smiles and fun wherever he went with his laughter and positive aura. He effortlessly embodied what alot of us strive to be - permanently stoked! I feel extremely fortunate to have called him my friend and that we had the oppurtunity to share some great times together. His spirit and those times will never fade from my memory. He is for sure saving us all a seat by the pool for when we will meet again! Aloha'Oe

"The more you are blessed, the more it hurts when you lose that blessing."
All my thoughts are with the Adler family at this sad, sad time.

Had a nice visit with Karen and the family tonight. Karen is an amazing woman and appreciates all the positive thoughts and best wishes. She and the kids are staying strong together. Mike leaves behind an incredible family.

I want to cry. To lose someone like this way before their time hurts. Mike was my first contact with the tiki community. Seal Beach was my hometown growing up. Over the last several years I would frequently stop in his store when I was in town visiting my mother. Mike was such a vivacious, energetic, and enthusiastic person. His personality made me want to buy all the stuff he had. Little by little my home was starting to look like an extension of his store.

The first tiki event I ever attended was at Caliente II. I do not remember how I found out about the event. I think I read an advertisement in the first Tiki Magazine I ever bought. I did not know what to expect since I was not part of the tiki scene and worried that I would be perceived as an intruder or outsider. As my wife and I entered the event we took no more that 5 steps before Mike recognized me as we walked through the pool area. He greeted us with a warm hello. He told us that there was nothing to worry about, explained how everything was and worked, and that we were going to have the time of our lives. He was right.

We will miss you Mike Adler. Heaven is going to have some kick-ass barbeques.

Mike was one of my best friends, nobody could smile and say "Johnny" the way he did. Mike made everything fun, I already miss him.
