My husband and I met Mike at Southwestern Furniture in Conroe many years ago and we became immediate fans. His creative talent and encouragement to think out of the box was what we needed. Mike would frequently say that we needed a decorative element that would "Pop" and he was always right! When we embarked on a major household renovation, Mike was always there to answer my many question. We finally decided to purchase and hang drapes in our MBR a few years ago and Mike was happy to guide us. He helped us with the color, the hardware and made a housecall to help hang the drapes. Mike always had a great big smile and a can-do attitude. We have reminders of Mike's decorative genius throughout our home.
Yesterday I was thankful to attend the celebration of Mike's life. I got to be with his loved ones and friends. The photos and the stories of Mike's life were both funny and heart warming. It was nice to meet Lilly who I heard numerous stories about the fun they had together. I was especially thankful to finally meet Angie who was the love of Mike's life and he constantly spoke of her with love and affection.
Mike will be truly missed by all who were touched by his life. I'm glad that we will be able to see him and rejoice with him again in heaven. May God bless and watch over Mike's loved ones until then.
