What a huge loss! Mike was so sweet. Sa truly nice person. He will be missed by all of our family. We grew up together and made many "cousin memories", including Max being our third partner.

I am so heartfully sorry for your loss, lifting you and your family and friends in prayer durning your time of sorrow. Although I did not know Mike from what Marla shared we know he is home with the Lord and suffers no more.
