Janet, I just heard yesterday about Mike's passing. I am so sorry for your loss. God bless you and your family with strength to get through these difficult times. I remember every time Dave and I ran into you and Mike, we always told the story of getting lost on our way to our college class. Mike and Dave would get shake their heads because they heard the story so many times. Mike's favorite Christmas Carol movie was with George C. Scott and we always brought that up too! If you need someone to talk with, I'm here for you. Joan Howard

I always enjoyed visiting with Mike. He enjoyed cooking and so do I. He was such a talented woodworker. I really enjoyed seeing things he had made or was working on. He was always kind, upbeat and positive. I will miss him.
