Prayers and my deepest sympathy to Mike’s wife and entire family.
Words are at a loss Marann, as you know I just lost my hubby on September 26th.
Love to you all.
Marann, I have been thinking about you. I can’t imagine how you are feeling, but I’m keeping you in my prayers . I will see you soon.
Mike, I think of you often. It’s very hard to think you are gone and I will miss you always.
Till we meet again good friend.
It was a great pleasure to work with Mike, my family and I were and still are sad to hear what happened.
In the 6 years that I worked with him, he was always so willing to share his knowledge, I could ask him just about any analytical questions and he would have an answer or search for one, easily one of the smartest individuals that I’ve meet.
We will miss your laugh and friendship.
My condolences to the family.
Mike, i have only known you for a few short years, but i will miss your smile and your jokes, you always made the best of things. Until we meet again my friend.
