    To Mike’s Family,

    My condolences go out to all of you. I knew Mike through Calvary Baptist in Leavenworth. We sat together in the choir and I will forever treasure those times. Mike did work for us in our new home in 2009. But most of all, he helped our famly when our son was sick. I will never forget him for reaching out to us when our world seem shattered. He was and is a Christian in the very best sense. He is with God and he is singing. I love you,Mike. It was a joy to be counted as one of your friends.

    Mike was my father. I know that even though there were many years lost for us due to his struggles he loved my brother and I very much. I spoke with so many people who told me what an inspiration he was to them and how he helped in so many ways. I know there are so many people that loved him and are blessed by him being in your lives. Thank you to all for the support for the family. He is home now with his mother and his Lord and Savior. Blessings to all!

    My granddaughter would say that Mike was my BFF…after 47 yrs of friendship I agree. Not a day that has gone by since his passing that I’m not reminded of him by things that I used to take for granted or not notice….I love you Brother.

    To those who loved Mike the most:

    I first met Mike at Northeast Junior High School in typing class. The class was about 75% girls and 25% boys, I was impressed that he was confidant enough in himself to take the class.

    Mike was always kind and thoughtful. I will always remember him that way.

    I’m so glad that I had the opportunity to reconnect with Mike via our high school reunion and FaceBook. I wish he had posted about his health problems so that I could have prayed for him or at least sent him words of encouragement.

    Now, my prayer is for those who loved Mike most, May Jesus wrap His loving arms around you and bring you comfort. Hold tight to your memories of Mike and he will always be with you. And know that Mike is in the presence and arms of his Savior, Jesus Christ.

    I met Mike in 2000. I didn’t think a whole allot about Mike at first. But soon I started to recognize the gifts God have given him. At first he finished projects that I had started. Then we where starting projects together. And finally he was starting projects on his own. The major goal Mike had was making amends to his Ex Wife and Children. After making that goal it didn’t take him more than a month and he made it happen. He is the only Man I have ever known who was truly grateful to their exes Husband. He knew he did a great job raising his children. He was also grateful to his Dad who he became closer to as time went on. And it was a big deal when his friend Tim came to town to live for a little while. I know I missed something here and for leaving it out I am sorry. Mike was a blessing in my life for over 10 years. I know Mike would want God to bless all of his friends and family and so do I.
