Not sure what to say?

I knew it! I knew it all along! I knew Dad loved me! He had a really hard time saying it when we were growing up, but I'm glad he finally told me! Kidding aside, it may have been only a few short days before his death, but Dad and I had a "father-son, heart-to-heart" talk. He started our conversation with one word, "Up." He wasn't speaking much at that point, and he certainly wasn't getting around much either. I asked "Do you want to stand up?" He said...

Tina, Mike and John. We are here for a while and then we are called home. May your Father be cradled in God's loving arms for all Eternity and Beyond.

Mike was a wonderful father-in-law, and a grandfather to my kids. He is in a better place and looking down smiling on all of us. He is also with GG and his Mom and so many more, finally peaceful. I will always cherish the memories.

Go Rest High on That Mountain, Mike. Glad to have known you. You will be missed.

We are thinking if you all. We hope he is at peace.

I am sorry to hear about Mike. Great neighbor - loved the pool. Although I think it was a love / hate thing for him ...with all the neighbor kids asking "can I come swimming." He set rules and it worked! Never turned down a request to help fix a bike, or re-thread a screw ... he was the "guy to go to" in the neighborhood. Blessings to you all during this time.

Always a fun guy, the guy with the camera in hand! Glad to have the memories. The entire Duval family is in my thoughts! I hope that you feel some peace knowing he is back in the arms of your Mom and sister! Lots of love to you all!

Offering our deepest condolences during this difficult time.
