To my first friend. We meet in 1957 and Mike has been my friend all that time. I hope we meet up again with all our love ones.

Mike Alexander was a like a big brother to me. He was 10+ years older than I was when we first met. The time we spent together, I cannot justify in enough words the love and affection I had for him. What a great person he was and one I will never forget. I'm so thankful you are no longer suffering any more and with those brand new wings God has given you, fly to the highest points in heaven that you can, and enjoy your new perfect body with the ones that have passed before you. Until we meet again my friend. Love you!
