Wow! Mike you were always apart of our family. I can not remember a time you were ever unkind. Your always friendly smile, loving heart and sincere words will always be with me. Your dedication to your God, country family and friends will not be forgotten. You may have been my little sisters God father but you were always the Uncle I never had. I will never forget your kitchen with Lorraine’s roosters and coffee and cookies on the table. I know you rest forever in the arms of our loving God until we see each other again…..You will be missed!
