I met Mike and Ann Laurie at life group. What a wonderful couple I could tell right off that both of them was so mild mannered and that Mike was a huge sports fan with his LSU shirts and maybe even a hat he was a very kind man and in my eyes they had a wonderful marriage. Although I didn’t know them that well and then Covid hit so we didn’t even see each other all the time. Mike will be missed by our life group and we are all the better for having met him and spent time with him.

Mike was my Field Sales Leader for almost 3 years at US Health Advisors. He helped me get my feet off the ground when starting my new career as a health insurance agent. He was a leader, serious about his profession, but we always had a laugh at the appropriate times when I did not know something. He was a great colleague and was always there to help, always! He will truly be missed by myself and many others. God bless you VanAm, This pic was 3 years ago when I reached my first milestone. He was always there. I will miss you my friend. Fly High Mike and look over all of us. RIP 🙏🏼

I would just like to extend my condolences to Mrs. Vanamburg and the Vanamburg children and family. I worked with Mike at U.S. Health Advisors and he was always very helpful and kind in my training. He always offered encouragement, support, and assistance with anything I may have been confused about. I often thanked him for the time and interest that he displayed for me and fellow agents’ success. He was a pleasure to work with. He will be missed.
