  1. Announcing a Celebration of Life Lunch for Mike Riley (a.k.a. "Computer Guy") who passed away November, 2021 here at lakeside. If you knew Mike, consider this your invitation to attend. Join me in the sharing of memories, stories, laughs or just to meet and greet. This occasion is hosted by me (brother) and Erica (Mike's daughter). Please PM me for place, date, and time. (No names required).
  2. ISO a house cleaning company. I live in San Antonio Tlayacapan, lakeside.
  3. Sorry to hear that. I just got the contract as soon as I signed up for the policy.
  4. Thank you for your comments. I went with Lewis & Lewis (Qualitas). One step closer...
  5. So, not better late than never? Was your insurance no good because the contract came late?
  6. Live and learn. Agents, because the difference is that some of those agents are local, and I'm thinking I'd get a faster response to an accident if they were near by, assuming the accident happens at the lake. Make sense?
  7. I'm getting full coverage Mexican car insurance quotes from 4 companies for my foreign-plated vehicle. I would like to get your yay or nay on your actual experience before I decide. Any reason why I should NOT get insurance from any of the following?: Lewis & Lewis, AXA, TioCorp, and Pilar Valdovinos Seguros
  8. bmh, so sorry to hear of your loss. My family had a similar experience when my brother died of a heart attack last November. The ambulance service called the cops who came and locked the place up for over four months to "investigate" even though we proved natural cause of death. It took an appearance in front of a judge in March to finally order the place opened. I'm disappointed to hear this is going on with others. I was hoping it was unique. It's a heads up for expats. My thinking is to have somebody call a doctor ONLY as he should have full authority to make decisions. Perhaps include this in your personal directive? I look forward to your developments.
  9. I made a donation of 1700 pesos in my brother's name to Lakeside Friends Of The Animals A.C. I encourage animal/pet lovers to do the same, in some amount. Not only did Mike donate to them on a regular basis, he also adapted two cats from this shelter, Winston and Spunky. Winston unfortunately ran away, maybe found a forever home he liked. Mike then found Patches. Both Patches and Spunky are alive and well and living their best life at Mike's partner's house. Lakeside Friends Of The Animals A.C. is located at Av. Hidalgo #212, Riberas del Pilar, Chapala, Jal. 45900. Phone#: (376) 765 55 44. Web: www.lfa-chapala.com. Facebook: lakesidefriendsoftheanimals
  10. That's awesome Solar. Thank you. Sign me up. So, just go to their office in Chapala?
  11. As an alternative to the Heart Institute, it would be nice to give to a local charity on Mike's behalf. For example Mike gave to the local food bank regularly. He also adopted two cats, Patches and Spunky. Consider these.
  12. I'll look into it. Let me know if anybody here has a suggestion. Heart-related.
  13. "Michael David Riley August 17, 1952 - November 8, 2021 With profound sadness, the family announces the passing of Michael Riley, at the age of 69 years. Cherished father of Erica Riley and predeceased by his son Matthew Riley. He is also survived by his longtime partner Cecilia Walters and her son, Nyah Walters, and his brothers Chris Riley and Steve Riley. Mike passed away suddenly at his lakeside home in Riberas/Chapala, Mexico early morning on November 8th from a heart attack. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends, his clients, as well as his two cats, Patches and Spunky. Mike moved to Ajijic in 2003 with his mother Shirley, and soon after became known to the community as “Mike the Computer Guy”. A longtime technical expert, Mike helped many expats, locals, and gringos alike with their technological needs as well as editing books by local authors and designing book covers. He was passionate about music, movies, and books of all kinds, and would make people laugh with his witty banter. Mike was the funniest guy in the room and could always bring a smile to your face. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Ottawa Heart Institute or a charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family." My family will be posting this in our local newspaper in Ottawa, Canada. Chris Riley
