Mike will be missed in Green Valley! He was the first smiling face that anyone met in the GV Singles group where he sat at the newbies introduction table. His dancing feet were always moving at the local music venues. We'll dance one in your memory!

Uncle Mike was in my life for only a short time; but the smile he brings to my heart will live forever. Thank you, Uncle Mike for sharing and giving of your time. Love you.
