I went to church with Mike. Just to say he was a brother in Christ would be an understatement. He all ways will be one of my best friends.

I've only known Mike for a few years. Whenever I would see him he would stop and chat no matter if he was in a hurry not. He always had a smile on face. He will be missed. I will keep the family in my prayers

In the 8 years we've been neighbors, we spent many days outside talking about anything from the most menial things to
family to God. I knew I could come to you about anything and not only would you give me advice, but that what I told you would stay with you. I am so blessed that you came into my life. Fly high "Big Daddy", you will forever hold a special place in my heart 💜
