my dear karen,
Our prayers and love is always with you and the family. We are thankful for all the times we shared...from the tomatoe trees without tomatoes...to the unplugging of the leaf blower-the simple things in life. With all the joking and good food/drinks we will always remember his smile and his laugh of kindness. May he rest in peace...
from the hood-always,
phillip, victoria, kristine and penny

I was saddened to read of Michael's passing. Even though we haven't talked for awhile, I wanted you to know that I am thinking of you at this difficut time. It sounds like it was a rough road and you both deserve the rest. May it comfort you to know that that he is at peace and you made his days on this earth worth living. Take Care!!

To Kacy, my sister (and sister-in-law),
Our hearts go out to you and to Mike's family. You took great care of Mike during his illness and you will receive many blessings.
The photo montage was wonderful and we hope you find peace in those Best of Times.
We offer a traditional Buddhist prayer for Mike's soul: Om Mani Padme Hung.
We will be with you for the memorial.
All of our love and good wishes.
Mike and Shery

Mike, I still remember sleeping on the hay wagon at Grandma's during the reunion. Thought it was great when you were in Cleveland and you made a point of letting me know it and going out to dinner.
Will miss you
