  • We knew Mike from church and the hot meals program . He was ALWAYS so friendly and wanting to talk and visit with all people. He was an inspiration to all of us and he never gave up enjoying life and never complained about very difficult health issues. He enjoyed coming to church and was interested in fellowship and men’s bible study. Keeping his family and friends in our prayers.
