Mike was a mentor and close friend. His Father gave me the opportunity to grow and developed into an real estate appraiser. We worked together for over 25 years at Appraisal Associates and had a lot of wonderful memories. I will miss his laugh and humor.

To the Wylie family, I will always cherish the time I was with the "Appraisal Associates Family". I have many fond memories of my time there and Mike was such a generous and kind person. Mike allowed me to be flexible with my time as we both had children the same age and faced many of the same challenges. To Pat, Emily, Leslie, Jennifer, Linda and the rest of the family, please know Sherman and I have you in our thoughts and prayers!
God Bless you all, Fannie
