Linda and family,

It has been some time since we last saw you in Canton as I coached Tony in baseball with Bob Paul. We heard about your loss in church. May God bless you and comfort you in the days that lie ahead. May He give you His strength to see that Mike has completed his journey here and is in one of God's many rooms now, preparing a place for those his love has touched but are left here behind. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers. Condolences, Dick and Linda Williams

I worked with Mike at GAF. My experience of Mike was that he was a responsible, intelligent and funny man. He was great to work with as he was serious about business while being seriously funny. We will all miss him.
My deep sympathy to his wife Linda and his famiy.
