Lisa,
I just heard and am so saddened by this news. I remember the fun times we all had when you and I lived together while you were dating Mike. I know that Mike has always been the love of your life. My heart goes out to you and your family. I love you, Girlfriend!

Mike was one of those truly amazing people that you meet on life's path. An encounter, however brief it may be, that puts a smile on your face every time you reflect upon your time with him. I was only in KY for a matter of months and a complete stranger to Mike-but he took me in and treated me like a son. I found this very sad news in seeking out Mike today after many years- hoping to reconnect with him. My thoughts and prayers for his family and all those he had such a positive impact on during his life.

Lisa and family,
I am so sorry to hear of Mike's passing. I'm still in shock as I am sure you are also. If there is anything that I can do for you and/or your family you need only to ask. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

I am so saddened by the news of Mike's passing.....I hardly know what to say.
Mike was a very thoughtful and understanding person...and placed compassion for others first and foremost.
A consummate professional, Mike dedicated himself to the citizens of the Commonwealth.
On a personal note, Mike was there for me during some difficult personal times years ago...and his support and concern helped me to endure them. The Capital City has lost a bright star...but it will continue to shine.

Mike and his family are in my thoughts and prayers. Godspeed, my friend.

Lisa,

I was so sorry to hear about your husband. I didn't know Mike, but always considered you such a special friend. I still think of you so often. I hope to get to the funeral home, but if I don't I wanted you to know how much I am thinking of you.

Lisa, You and your family are in our prayers.

Mike is mourned by a community and state who knew him as a personal friend as well as an unwavering advocate firstly for his family and then his community/state. His sudden loss has stunned those of us who have been fortunate enough to enjoy his wit and stark candor. We will miss his presence, and ache for his family's loss. May he be rejoicing in the joy of Our Lord's grace.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Haydon family.

I am sorry to hear about this. He was a great asset to Kentucky. Springfield has lost a true Kentucky Statesman. Rejoice in the fact that he was a very positive person and touched the lives of many. Reset in Peace my friend.

Lisa, Blair, Kate, Ben and Family, you are in my thoughts and prayers. Today the entire state mourns with you. Mike's personality, smile, and (yes)charm brightened the room whenever he walked in. The Commonwealth of Kentucky has lost a true Statesman and his vast knowledge of the workings of government cannot be matched. One of the memories I will always carry with me is how much Mike loved his family, especially his children. He treated his children with fairness, firmness and love. If every father was like Mike we would have less turmoil in the world today. May God hold you close in the days ahead.

A true friend and my cousin, he always made me smile and had a kind word for everyone. He would go out of his way to help you any way he could. He was the best politican I ever knew and met. You will truly be missed in Kentucky Mike.
Lisa, Blair, Kate, Ben, Uncle CH, Aunt Frances and family, Mike left a mark that will always be remembered. I onlly hope more people will use him as a role model on how to treat everyone in life. Sleep well my friend. You did well. God bless.

Mike was a friend to everyone he met and a dedicated servant to the people of Kentucky. he will be sorely missed by all who knew him. He stayed connected to his roots in Washington County, adn lived by those principles.

Mike served Kentuckians for more than 35 years;
Tackling numerous hurdles without any fears!

He was always able to laugh and have fun, for that was his talent;
Possessing the ability to get the job done, while remaining forever gallent!

The world has lost a great friend, this fact is so true;
I pray that God eases each sad and heavy heart, that is felt by each of you.

I Love You Lisa ~ Jean Marie, your friend of 39 years.

I've considered Mike a friend for so long, since I had the pleasure of working with him in state government. He always made time to recognize you and make you feel like one of his "important" people. I considered him a friend.
