    What a privilege it was to know Mike, and what a shock to hear of his passing. He was a dear friend, an honorable man, a loving husband and father, a master of his profession, and a genuinely good guy.

    My family and I express our heartfelt condolences. We’ll keep your family in our prayers. And, we’ll keep Mike’s memory in our hearts now and forever.

    Pam and Elizabeth,

    My heart grieves with each of you, for your loss so dear to your hearts, I’m most thankful for the few nights I spent in your loving home,privileged to know Mike and be graced with his signature breakfasts ! We share some wonderful memories of your wedding, Elizabeth, and especially your sweet Daddy Daughter Dance and how proud your Dad was to have honored you. It was my joy to meet and get to know Mike’s son and family at that dinner.
    Pam, you have such rich memories of loving times,and you, Elizabeth, have a warm, rich heritage, monetarily unattainable, as Mike cultivated for you,

    Cousin Pam and Elizabeth, both of you have been and will continue to be in my prayers for Jesus to wrap His comforting arms around you, holding you tightly in reassurance He will strengthen and guide you as you trust Him, as you have learned to do through many “bumps” along our Journey of Life.

    Much love and prayers for you both.

    Barbara Marston Inman
