    Mary, We tried earlier, but we were unable to get to the guest book. As a staff, we’ve been praying for you and your family when we circle up to pray for a meal and when we meet as a staff every morning.

  8. Dear Family,
    Natalie, you and Mike finding each other again after so many years was a dream so many of us have but you did it. He loved you so. Mary and Allison, your dad was my best friend we walked many miles together as you both know. Girls, he was so proud of both of you,he loved you so. Just love that little brother and always keep your dad in his heart. Cheri and Dennis, thank you for sharing your son with me we do not have to say anything to understand. Mike, I love you go in peace you will be forever missed, my best friend.

  9. I will remember Mike for his compassion and his love for his wife and children. I spoke with him on the night of the 29th about how he had married his high school sweetheart and his future plans. It came as a sudden shock when I heard of the lost. My condolences goes to his family. He will be greatly missed.

  10. Memories linger as ghosts that will haunt me until my own end. No consolations no peace and no closure. The years pass and yet the pain is as it was, an unending emptiness that will never be filled. A part of my own life died with you. Whoever said time heals all wounds was full of shit. Goodbye my friend, I mourn your loss as well as envy your escape from this nauseating ride we call life.

  11. I had class with Mike at MCC. What a great person. My prayers and thoughts are with you all!
