    We are so sorry about Mike. He was always so good about calling Don, he’d call often and check on him, especially since he retired. We already miss those long talks. We are praying for all of you. Please know he was loved and will be missed.

    O my sweet sweet Mike. I had a moment when I read this and saw your beautiful face. Then I realized that you would say something like “kimmy when it’s our time it’s our time”. God put you and Pam in my life as a child and He knew as a grown adult you would both be what I needed. We lost touch a time or two but we were steadfast in our love for each other.
    I will forever cherish the scars on my leg from out motorcycle ride, I will always remember the orange tic tac candies you’d get for me and mostly I will forever love you as my best man friend. ????????????
