I enjoyed working with mike years ago ( I always called him country ) and I enjoyed every time I ran into him and we got to talk. Later in life my son got the pleasure of meeting mike and really liked him , just like i did. He was a good guy who loved his family and the Lord. I’ll miss you. Ann and boys we will be praying for you and all the family.

I'm going to miss you dad you don't know how much I loved you. Thank you for all the knowledge you passed on to me and AJ. I know you are in a better place to day you are with Jesus now.
Thank you for all the laughs and all the long conversations all of the work you made us do when we were younger we didn't like it then.. But, as time has went on it helped shape us into the men we are today. So just as I ended every conversation with you here I love you dad.

I will miss our fence time chats about the Lord, gardening, politics, weather, and of course my chickens. Mike knew how allergic I was to poison ivy and would always tell me that the stuff never bothered him and would make sure it was gone on the fence line by pulling it out with his bare hands. He was an amazing neighbor and friend. I will see him again when my name is called. Prayers for his family.
