Denise Mikesch

November 19, 2020

I have so many fond memories starting as a young child in the back seat for Sunday night Drive-Inn's, super cool rides on the Chopper and the endless Car Shows. As an adult I learned your wisdom on life and responsibility and our Dad/Daughter relationship soon included "Friend". I am going to miss our conversations and our meal times together, actually I already do! I am so thankful that God put you in our lives.
I Love You Gary.
Mom, we will love you through this time.
