We will miss Mike greatly, He had found a dollar bill years ago with my name on it, and kept it always in his wallet. Whenever I saw him, he would show me that dollar and said that whenever he looked at it he would say a prayer for me. Our prayers are with your family, He will be missed greatly.

dad, we will miss you always. Heaven is now a much better place now that you are there. walking the streets of gold must be a pleasure even you could not have imagined. i trust michael and manual we're waiting on you. we will always remember the trips, the visits, the vacations. we'll remember the camping trips we took. most of all we'll miss the greatest grandpa and papa ever. and i'll miss the best dad anyone could have ever asked for.

dad, you will always be my hero. i have no other example of what it is to be a man and to take care of my family. you never thought of yourself only others, i can only hope one day i can be like you. through all the trials you never doubted God, you dug deeper into the word and prayed harder. i will miss calling only to hear you laugh and say "mary", i will miss calling to get your guidence. i will miss you always. i will never forget fishing with you, i will never forget how you always knew what when and how to say and give encouragement. i will never forget you. i love you now and forever and hope to see you on that beautiful shore with all my heart and love, mark
