Our hearts are so saddened by the passing of our newly found friend, Mike. Although we only shared one camping trip with Mike and Ginger, it was a great time and we so looked forward to having them join our small group of campers for many more trips and adventures. Mike was such a generous person and we were so lucky to have met him. He will be missed by us and many others no doubt. God bless Ginger and his family through this trial and we hope Mike is resting peacefully in our Lords presence.

Sorry for your loss. Mike was a fellow Rotarian with me. He shared enthusiastically his fond memories of his fishing adventures with his son in Alaska.
He was a good man and I enjoyed his company at our lunch meetings.
