Sharon, Tony, Betty Gail and family,
I have been thinking of you all and sharing in your grief. My mother passed away late Christmas Eve. We will miss them tremendously, but I have faith that they are walking with Jesus now and reunited with loved ones. May God comfort you and give you peace.

Mike was more like a brother than a brother-in-law to my father Noah (Ray) Parish. I will always remember him as a kind and loving father and uncle. Loving thoughts to all.
