Where to begin I guess the late ‘60’s when this neighbor boy came and helped on the farm. The memories will always fill my heart. Then jump ahead to 2004 when Mike became my brother in law. He then spent time helping me and his brother Larry farm. Mike and I spent time emptying wagons and doing field work. I am happy he spent the last 12 years with my high school friend Linda. I will never forget how he called me Sis. I will never forget his laugh and smile. I will always cherish him and my memories of this kind man.
