  • Sorry to hear of Mike’s passing. Had not seen him in quite some time. I lived in Denmark and we went to school at Edison and MG together although he was 3 yrs older than I. We rode the same bus and he and his parents went to the Methodist church their in Denmark on Sundays. He certainly did love the farm.
    Thoughts and prayers for you and May God Bless you. May Mike RIP.
