    I was very sorry to hear of Mikes passing. He was a very good person,he was always sincere about where he was in life when it came to his religion,family and his job.

    • Thanks for your condolence Mike was starting with dementia brought on by our accident years ago. He fell down the steps to his man cave. He suffered three brain bleeds and it caused his dementia to speed up. We had to put him in a nursing home where he had a stroke..God was merciful and took him home after about two weeks. I’m devastated. It’s hard to go on but i must for the children.
