I’m sorry to see the passing of Mike. He was a good friend for the 4 years of high school.
I am so sorry I can not attend the service. I hope you will call me if you need anything.
Melissa and family,
My heart breaks for you. You loss is unmeasurable. I pray you can find comfort in the days to come knowing Michael is in a much better place and his body is whole as it was much long ago. He will continue to have his arms around you and the kids protecting you and guiding you until you see him again. I will continue to remember his smile and that funny sense of humor of his.
