    I remember Mike from school. He was always a good guy. In later years we attended church and Sunday School together. He enjoyed just being around others. He was always a good person. I'm so sorry for your loss. Our heartfelt prayers are with you.

    Mike and I went to Sycamore together and were in Cub Scouts together. Time separated us for 40 years, and then we went to church together the last few years. I will miss him. Condolences to his family.
