We have been humbled and have been filled with the spirit. Mike believed in the Lord and truly went to Him in prayer and life with the heart of a trusting child. When I think of the great love a man can have for, and be to a woman- I'll think of you.
You have a great love for family as well, and demonstrated that love. Your friends and neighbors loved and respected you. I never saw a person in need that you didn't reach out to. You loved people and the ones who knew you loved you back.
It was a privilege to spend the time with you that we have had together. We've had ups, downs, and sideways, and I feel grateful for it.
Michael enjoyed fishing, yardwork, and building models. He got a kick out of NASCAR. (Go Dale Jr.)
Surviving Michael is his wife, Robyn; children, Mandy and Issac; grandchildren: Jesse, Nevaeh, Anthony, and Ashley; and many dear friends.
