Mike and I were classmates in Elberton and he was also a close neighbor. He played football for my dad, and he always had a smile on his face. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Jane: I'm so very sorry to hear about Mike's passing. He was a great boss and friend during the many years I worked for him. He will be missed by many as he had a big impact on many lives at The Southern Company. David Reynolds

I am so sorry for your loss. He lived for you, the girls and the grand kids. Most people never experience such a wonderful love. He terrified me when I first met him but within a few days I knew he was just a sweet "teddy bear" and if you worked it right you could get anything out of him.
