Where do we start...Mike, you and Laurel have been a part of our lives since before we were teenagers ..been thru the wild times, before the birth of our kids, many nights of playing cards with the kids, fishing adventures, toilet papering, pissing on dirt roads, mushrooming, camping, pontooning.....way too many things to remember because we were always in the moment!
THANK YOU for all those memories and the good say we will miss you is an understatement changed our lives for the better, our brother from another mother....
Please don’t worry about Ethel....we will love and take of her just like we loved you... rest easy, bro...till we meet again...

a hardworking, humble, and generous soul that indeed had the good fortune of finding his one true love, and made her his wife. The world lost a lot of love, when that heart stopped beating and mine is broken for the loss Sweet Laurel, his children, friends and family are feeling right now. huge HUGS and Love to you all.
