We will miss our talks and visits at the flower shop. We appreciated his business, but mostly we appreciated his friendship.

Mike was a good friend and we loved him and Elva. One of our fondest memories is of our wedding. They were our only “attendants.”

Kind and thoughtful and always a gentlemen are thoughts that come to mind as I remember Mike. He is missed.

Mike and Elva both were such special people and friends to me. I enjoyed my visits and years of knowing them both as a couple and time with him solo, he so missed Elva. May the memories and warmth of these two remain in friends and the families hearts always. Elva is missed and Mike now will be missed also. They were both much loved. God bless you the family, I had heard so much about all of you through the years. Thinking of you. Mike and Elva always had a smile to give and much more.
