Mike, I am so sorry we never got to talk and catch up. I have so many memories of you growing up, riding mini bikes, you putting the frog up to my face when I was riding on the back of your bike and i jumped off, you being hit by a car in the road beside my back yard, hide and seek, sledding, all kind of fun things we used to do in the neighborhood. I would have loved to have heard about your life and your children, we will have to do that when I see you again in Heaven. Strength and peace to all of your family, including Skipper and Jackie, and may they remember you with smiles and love.

He was an amazing uncle and his nieces loved him dearly as do I. His eyes would always light up when they would come running in the house to see him and give him a hug. Especially loved the Disney world trips with mom. He rode any and every ride with the girls. He is truly missed but never forgotten.

He was more than a brother he was my friend. His passing has been a blow to our family but at the same time a blessing as he has brought us together again. Love you with all my heart. Save a place for us and tell mom and dad I love them.
