The Shifflett family, You are all in my thoughts and prayers. I have so many memories of Mike back in the day at Weyers Cave. Playing softball and coming to our house. He always seems so jolly and laughed alot. He would always speak to you when he seen you some where. May God comfort you in this time of sorrow. May God heal your heart from hurting and guide you to peace. God bless you all. With deepest sympathy.
