We were so sorry to hear of Mike's passing. We did not hear of this until we were at the Past Presidents breakfast last Saturday. LuAnne & I will always remember you and Mike coming by our hospitality suite at the Sheraton the year I was President. It was always great to visit with you and you were both so kind to our children. Kellen & Kasey are 25 and 21 now and both join us in sending you our thoughts and prayers!

Sug, Myrna and I just heard about Mike. He was a super guy and I really enjoyed working with him at State Industries and knowing him after he retired. Mike will be missed by many - gone way too soon.

Dear Sug,
I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of Mike. I, of course, never knew him, but he must have been a peach to be married to you. I hope you are well. Mary let me know. Take care of yourself and remember all the good good things. They will always be with you.
Love, Helen Farrell
