Mike and Sheri was true love birds...... always together ,every minute , every day, every where... They were happy to be SOO much in love... I use to joke wth Mike that Sher didn't come out of the box like this .. He made her spoiled , where she didn't drive for 8 years or get her own pop , or warm up her food, or make her own drink .. Mike would make her dinner and Sheri would say " Mike I will let you make me another grilled chicken , lol . Mike would just smile and say ok honey.. Mike loved to take CARE of Sheri.. He was such a sweet southern gentleman , that was easily loved .. He will be missed..!!! God bless

My condolences go out to his family-to Sherri. He was a coworker at GM with me and a fellow Washington High school Wildcat (class of 1975). I will miss his smile.

Sherri: I am so sorry to hear of Mike's passing. Mike and I worked together at Woolworth's at Indian Springs through high school. He was my first "boyfriend". I still have the ceramic Heart keepsake box his mother made and he gave to me on Valentine's day in 1973. He was a good friend and I am so glad he had you to help him on his journey through life. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficulty time.
