Many were touched by Mike and his gift of JOY.
Lisa baby (just like my little sister) Mike was never any thing but JOY. I will miss him saying "hey chick", and when I think of you at this moment my heart breaks. Remember - I knew you before you met Mike... when you were boyfriend and girlfriend... then as husband and wife. God truly is in charge because he made Mike perfectly for you and made you perfectly for Mike.... you were perfect together. Years later you had Haley. I've never seen such a beautiful child and of course she has the sweetest personality - the combination of both Mike and you. Haley is the perfect gift from God because she is just like her dad and her mom. What I've learned about God taking someone home is that he may take Mike, but he will never leave you and Haley. I've never had anything but a fantastic time with you guys, never felt anything but pure love.
Missing Mike - Knowing he's not here on earth anymore because it was time to go to heaven I can already feel his absence. At the same time I can feel his wonderful spirit.
Give Haley one of my bear hugs, and tell her it is from Aunt Karen. Lisa, I will be there Saturday and will personally give you yours!
Patty I know Mikie was your best friend and I know your family has had too much loss over the last year.... I don't ever remember my life without you there.
I will end with this: From the bottom of my heart and straight from my soul we are all better people from knowing Mike. May GOD hold you all and keep all of you in his perfect peace.
MIKE to you MY FRIEND
I will not say good bye, I will say til we meet again.
From the bottom of my heart and the depths of my soul - I love you guys forever and always.
