A visit to Mercury Cleaners in Hartford might take a few minutes.

The service is great, don't get me wrong.

Until last Monday, though, I might spend an extra minute speaking with the owner Nick DiMaio, or his dad Mike, "Mr. Mike" as I called him.

Sometimes, our conversation, led mostly by Mike, was, why don't you show Italian soccer?

Mike passed away last Monday.

We'd like to offer our condolences to Nick his wife Judy and all of Mike's grandchildren.

And, in Mike's honor, AC Milan defeated Udinese on Sunday, one to nothing.
