I wish I could be there as you celebrate Mike’s life and I am very sorry for the hurt and loss you are feeling. The world has lost a good man but the world’s loss is heaven’s gain. I have many great youthful memories of Mike as we spent a lot of time together as teens. He was a great friend who I knew had my back if I needed him. As time went on we went our separate ways to raise a family and live life. Mike leaves behind a wonderful loving family that will miss him greatly. I know he was a great father, husband, son and brother. I pray the best for you all as you try to cope with his absence.
