I was very saddened to hear of Mike's passing. I remember him as a very engaging person who did not know a stranger. He was smart, kind and a person I admired. The special quality that Mike had that will always stand out to me was his consideration of his father-in-law; our father John Hutson. Mike always had time to mow dad's yard, visit with him, and most important to dad, Mike would take him to the casino in Osceola. Dad's eyes sparkled when he talked about him and Mike going there for their “boys' night out”. I often wondered how many people would take the time to go out of their way to pick up their 80 year old father-in-law when they were going out for the evening. That was the kind of guy Mike was; and that is why he will be dearly missed by all.
With heartfelt sympathy; my thoughts and prayers are with you Debbie.
