    Dear DiCorte Family,
    My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.

  2. My thoughts and prayers go out to Dianne and the family. He was a Great Man and neighbor to us from 1975 till they moved to the Ranch. Between him and my Dad "Tex" I’m a better person. He taught me how to help a person when they’re down or need guidance. He never told my dad, brother or me no. If we needed help with something or just a TOOL for the job. I can’t even imagine what Mike, Ken and Dad are doing up there, but I bet it’s a blast!!!!

  3. Dianne and family, my deepest thoughts and prayers are with you all. I have many fond memories of all the generousity you always had toward everyone, not just a few. The whole DiCorte family was one of the many blessings I praised many times. Mike will be missed immensely, however God gave us all the most precious gift of all – Memories! I pray that God puts his loving arms around each of you and gives you the strength and the will to endure this priceless loss in your lives. In Jesus name I pray.

    Mike will be dearly missed! He was truly the sweetest man we have had the pleasure of knowing. Loved listening to his many stories while sitting on the front porch at the deer camp. He is in heaven with all the other Angels that have gone on before him.
    Love to all the family.
