    I’m so sorry Bonnie to hear of Mike’s passing. We will remember him as a Man of great Character, Integrity, Morals, Values, Principles and he was always a loyal and true Friend. He worked hard for his family, he cared for and loved you, the children and grandchildren. We now pray for his Spirit and we pray that God will comfort you and your family during this difficult time.

  2. Sue Hunnings says:

    Savannah lost a kind and carling fella today. Mike tirelessly helped others by donating his time and words of encouragement. Through the Secret Santa program Mike brought happiness to friends and strangers (who were just friends he hadn’t met yet). At the office, I could always count on him to be supportive, be on-time, to volunteer, to react in a calm manner and to have a good joke ready to make folks laugh. His sweet wife, family and friends are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Bonnie, just heard this morning about Mike. We are so sorry for your loss. Mike was a great guy and great Dad. Our kids grew up together! I always enjoyed seeing his truck coming down the road. I would be out cutting grass and he would stop and say “come on down and do my yard next”. We are going to miss him but he leaves a great legacy in your children and grandchildren!! God Speed!!
