Your husband and father, Mike was my Angel, on September 16, 1993. I met him that day when my five-day-old daughter passed away of natural causes (Anancephalic). He worked at Maupins funeral home at that time. Melody Maupin came to my house and picked us up. I held Janice Mae in my arms all the way to the funeral home. I don't remember what we talked about at the funeral home, I do remember this. We were done with everything we needed to do and Mike took me into a room without anyone else. Mike asked if he could go ahead and take Janice Mae, without even thinking I gave her to him. not realizing I was never going to hold my warm baby again. He was a Blessing to me that day and has always and will always remain dear to me. He was and is my Angel I Thank God for Homer Michael Nephew. My Deepest Sympathy

Very sad to hear this. I will always remember Mike as a very intelligent funny man. He brightened our days while I was in Security. He will be missed.
