I went to high school with Mike. He was a good guy. Any time I ran into him over the years, he was always so happy, so friendly. That smile, that laugh! I admired the way he fought the cancer that eventually took him. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. May your memories comfort you.

My dad - always having fun, sharing joy and love. My sadness is immeasurable, but you will live in my heart forever and I will make you proud by living my life with as much passion and vigor as you did.

Barb, Steve,Lisa and the rest of the family, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Mike. I know this is a very impossible time for all of you. I pray that comfort will come to you from the love and peace that you have knowing Mike is being well taken care of and is no longer suffering but is disease free. I remember when Barb and Steve first got married and we used to be around Mike alot, I had a huge crush on him..I was 15 and boy crazy after all. I loved his sense of humor and his funny facial expressions. I will hold his memory in my heart and know I will see him again some day. 💙
