Uncle Mike,
I know heaven sure is celebrating for gaining you. It doesn't make it easier on the heart .
But, I know your up there singing and playing a tune with grandpa and grandma, Uncle Sam and Uncle Bear.
I will never forget us sitting around and you wrapping your arm around me as I was crying saying its okay if you cant carry a tune, you can play one. Then you teaching me some cords on the guitar. Sure wish i got a chance to show you my new one.
Know I love you and you will be forever in my heart.

Uncle Mike was a great inspiration to me growing up. I loved the way could sing and play the guitar, my favorite was Statue of a fool, an amazing artist and was very talented at everything he did

We’ll miss you Uncle Mike - Song it and Sing it loud !!
