This is Mike Batayeh. He was an ex boyfriend from many years ago. (and one of my recent besties). I am in shock to learn he passed away a few days ago. Im so sad. Been thinking for days I need to call him but got caught up in all my work.
He was an amazing actor, writer and comedienne. Look up his stats. He was in several well known tv shows and movies. (was in Breaking Bad and other shows)
RIP Mike. I will miss you. He was one of my besties and I feel horrible I had not spoken to him since I left to California. We chatted daily sometimes. During the pandemic we talked everyday. He brought me through that dark period.
