Mike was a special friend to our family and will be missed much! We had great, lengthy conversations where we talked about everything and resolved all of our own problems and those of the world as well. We talked of our families, the Lord, and our countryall loves that he and I held deeply. The wit and humor he brought to all of those conversations will be cherished and missed. Fond, fond memories and blessings to Suzanne and his children.
