  1. Jeanette, Patrick, Amanda and family, we are deeply sorry for your loss. We have such great memories from our friendship in the past, during the “Navy” years and after. Mike was a great friend and while we miss him terribly, we will cherish his memory. Love to you all.

  2. CandleMy thoughts, heart and prayers are with you all. I would like to try to make it for the service, but I am going thru a health issue right now that may prevent me from being able to go, unfortunately. I will try to be there, but please forgive me if I cannot. If not, I’d love to see you once I’m past this.

    I will always remember Mike coming out to our Relay-for-Life events and helping set things up or bring stuff that was needed. It was so very much appreciated.

    Miss you tons!
