To All of you:
Words can never express how much I enjoyed my childhood with all of you. Mike was so involved in everything we did from setting up tents with a tv, to fixing our go cart every time the chain come off, to our many pool times,beach trip,endless kick ball games and when he came home he would bring me something too. He would always toot his horn leaving or coming. He was a special man and made my childhood special. I love all of you and thank you for letting me be apart of the Brewer Family. Love YA
