    I can’t say enough good things about my good friend and brother Mike. After just a few family get togethers, l knew my sister Janice made a good choice when she married Mike. He was the easiest going an most soft spoken person I ever met. He had a strong moral compass and it shows in his children an grandkids. He was always kind and gentle with his family and ours also. I remember many many times he helped my mom and Aunt Helen doing yard work other projects. He just liked to go out of his way to help folks. He was just a good person, I will miss him. Love ya buddy.
