It has been a long time since we have seen Mike. Our families did a lot together. We lived on the same street growing up. My dad and his mom were cousins. We were saddened to hear about his sudden passing. He will surely be missed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of you! May your memories help.

I express my deepest condolences to The Jones' Family.
I worked with Mike for 9 years, we had our breaks together mostly every day. I feel as though I have lost a brother/good friend. Mike was always happy and upbeat, always talking wonderful about his loving family.
R.I.P. my friend.

Mike and I did a lot of growing up together. Confirmation, graduation and first time in college were all big. We bought our first motorcycles at the same time. Then we moved on to cars.

My sincere sympathy to the family along with best wishes. And a special greeting to Bob, Tom, Matt and Linda, who did a darn good job providing me with a second home.
