Thank you Diane and Karen for your sharing. Karen I believe I remember Mike attending your brother's funeral. I think he said you live not too far from him and he wanted us to have dinner with you and your husband. It was always important to Mike to pay final respects and be a comfort to families and friends during their time of need.

I am so very sad to hear of your loss. Michael came to my brothers' memorial. It was so nice to see him and we talked for a long time. He was a wonderful and thoughtful person.
My love to all of his family

I remember Mike's love for the Lord. I often saw a twinkle in his eye and the joy of being in class on a Sunday morning. I love that he cared so much about having his girls go to Christian School. It was a priceless decision that I highly respected. He is with our Jesus now.
