Uncle Mike, I will miss you deeply. I have so many wonderful memories of you that I will keep close to my heart. You and your “antique” blue truck. Our trips to the river. And of course, my fondest memory of all, when you took me for a ride on the back of your motorcycle, when I was only about 9 years old.
I miss you and love you.
You are now reunited with God and our lord Jesus. I love you.
Gloria, I was so sorry to hear about Tiller. I know you will greatly miss him. Just remember he will always be with you. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
I know that your dear husband will be looking down on you and guiding you as the love of his life. You are in my prayers.

Gloria, I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your husband, Mike. My thoughts are with you and your family.
Gloria — I am so very sorry for the loss of your precious Mike. I know how much he loved you and you loved him. I can remember you often sharing “Mike is so good to me.” He will always be in your heart and that can’t be taken away. My prayers to you and Jonathan, Sarah and Steve. I know this will not be easy in the days ahead. May God give you comfort and peace as Mike now your heavenly angel watches over you until you meet again. Where this is great love there is great loss. Love, Teresa
My thoughts and prayers are with you and family.
Dear Mike, I remember the “Weekend Angels Days” when everybody rode to Eastland Creek on the weekends. I wouldn’t Take any amount of money for the times I rode with you to the Lighthouse restaurant for breakfast. Those times will stay in my heart forever!! I appreciate yours and Gloria’s lifetime of friendship! I know you are with the Good Lord now, but I will miss seeing and talking to you!
Wayne, you and your family have our deepest sympathy
With deepest sympathy my friend !! I was so saddened to hear about your loss. You know I love you and will always be here for you anytime. Love BettieBoop
