Mikal Lee Legrande, It is hard for me to imagine not seeing that beautiful smile of yours again. You will be missed but never forgotten. Even though you lived a short life. You had a very full wonderous life in Christ. I will see you again, until that day I will hold you in my heart and thoughts.

Rest In Peace.

Roger and Colleen,

There are no words to say that can express my condolences for the loss of my wonderful cousin Mikal. He was a wonderful person, man, father, son, and friend to all who knew him. We know that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. We will see him again some day. My thoughts and prayers are with you always. Love your cousin, Ruby Linda

Dear Family of Mikal, it was nearly 20 years ago when Mikal was my student at Northeast. His smile, laughter, and infecteous humor seems to have been character traits that never left him. My deepest condolences go out to you in this hour of sadness. You are in my prayers. May God bless you.
