    I’ve know Mike since grade 8, and his smile and laugh is very contagious. I’m sorry he was taken away from so young, he may be gone from us. But he’s up there looking down on his beautiful wife and 3 beautiful children, may be gone but not forgotten.

    I went to school with Mike while he lived here in Geary. Even though we didn’t know each other well and haven’t seen each other in a long time it says something when you hear a name and can put a face to it right away it means he left an impression on your heart. I am saddened to hear about his passing he was always kind and his smile always lit up the room. Mike will forever be in my heart. Remember the good memories to get through the sorrow and let the memory of his smile lite up your heart the way it lit up the room. Let it give you strength to get through your sadness. I will be thinking about and praying for your family as you face the challenges ahead and I am truly sorry for your loss.
