Not sure what to say?

I worked with Mike for a few years at OfficeMax in Bay City. He was a fun-joyous dude to be around. Always had a funny joke or a good story for me. I was shocked to hear of his passing and my condolences go out to his wife, children, and close friends.

Although it was only for a year, it was such a joy being able to work with you. You were a wonderful coworker and overall great person to be around. I appreciate that I was able to be apart of the Morley work family with you, and our new family extends our deepest condolences to yours. Youll be so greatly missed.

As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.

My deepest condolences to all for this great loss. Mike was truly a genuine person.

I had the pleasure of working with both Mike and Jodi at Target. Mike was one of those people who make the world a better place just by being in it. I am so very sorry for his loss and he will be so missed. Sending hugs and prayers to Jodi and the family.

I had the pleasure of working with Mike at Morley Companies. I am so very sorry for the loss the family has experienced. Mike loved sharing stories of his family and you could sense the love he had for them. They are in my thoughts and prayers at this time.

My condolences to Mikes family! Mike was a compassionate guy and he had such a amazing heart! I enjoyed sitting next to him at work discussing everything from life to comics. I miss the conversations we had and debates on what the storylines the MCU was following or what characters from the comics would be introduced into the MCU. My heart goes out to Welters family.

I enjoyed working with Mike at Staples. Great guy, and friend. So glad he reached out to me on Facebook and reconnected. Mike did things his way, and loved his family. Always talked about them, and how much he enjoyed watching them in band. I will miss him, very sorry for your loss.
