    So sorry to hear of the sudden passing of our friend, Mike. We have known him since we met him several years ago at our church in Howell, TN. He had a fine sense of humor and always had a big smile for everyone. We will miss his empy place in the pew in front of us, but we know he is with his Heavenly family and our Lord and is now smiling with the angels there.
    Our deepest sympathy. C F and Charlotte

    I was crushed to hear this news. All the memories of my first love came flooding back to me. Mike was a great guy and I have so many wonderful memories that will never be forgotten. I had just run across our prom picture a few days go and showed it to my daughter. Rest in peace Mike and I pray for peace for your family during this difficult time.
