It's been one year without you Papa. I've missed you every moment of every day! I know you're at peace. Playing with and walking all your dogs all over heaven. You have all your memories again and have your beloved mother by your side along with other family and friends. Knowing this in my heart is the only thing that gets me through life without you. No one loved me or believed in me more than you! Because of you I had a one of a kind family full of love! You spoiled me rotten with love and protected me with your life. You raised me to be a good person with a heart full of love, understanding, and faith. I do my best to make you proud. I miss your laugh, your stories, how you picked and played with everyone including the animals, and I miss your strong hugs that always made everything OK! I just miss you so much, papa! I'm forever your little angel! You're forever my Papa! I love you!

I am Sorry to hear of Mike's Passing. I worked with Mike at B&W, he taught me many things which I use today in my job. Mike was a good person, very intelligent with many skills that he used to get the job done right and he shared these things with me. Thanks to Mike , our Lord and Mike's family for him sharing part of his life with me Mike was always an uplifting joy to all that knew him. I enjoyed every time I would see him through his Walmart and retirement years.I am a better person because I knew Mike McCaully.
God bless all.
