My deepest condolences to you all. I was unable to attend the funeral service. I was Mike's Massage Therapist for many years. He was a father figure to me and also, a dear friend. We had many moments of laughter and philosophical conversations that inspired me greatly. I was always amazed at Mike's ability for recalling very detailed pieces of information. He had a mind like a steel trap. LOL. I admired his commitment and dedication to his family and compassion for others and always extended his hand to help others in need. He is one of the greatest human beings I have ever known. My life is greatly enhanced because I knew him. And learned much from him. Thank you Mike for being a Steadfast Angel on Earth. Raven.

Mary, Gary, Judy and families,
I was sooooo shocked when I saw Judy's post about prayers for Mike. And then Lars's telling of Mike's passing! I'm soooo sorry! Even tho I didn't get to see you much after you left Traverse. I would think of you occasionally. And I am soo glad I was able to see you again at our last family reunion at Judy and Lars's home. I so enjoyed talking with you. I'm glad I got that chance. Much hugs and love 💘 Shelly Walter.

Mike,
You will forever be in Becky and my hearts forever. Although we moved from Killeen years ago you were our tax guy and more than that, you were our true friend. A friendship that started in 1996 while doing my Bogotá taxes and bloomed into a true friendship. I always had to go and say hello to my friend no matter how many days we were in town. You always had time to just say hello no matter how busy you were. Your Legacy will live forever thought your sweet family.
RIP my friend you are now home with all the other angels. Look down upon us and make us all as strong as you.

We will see you again our friend.
