Not sure what to say?

Mike, in the Guadalupes, where he was happiest.

Kay,
I'm so sorry about your lose. I hope the best for you and yours.

Hi Kay,

This is Wes. I just wanted to say hi and I love you. I know that there are not words that will heal or take your pain away. But you are loved!

My uncle Mike was a very big man

With my deepest sympathy, our prayers are with you and your family.

Kay, Chris Gordon wrote me of Mike's "passing". It saddened me. I'll be praying for you and your family.

I will never forget his pucker for my kiss in Lubbock or the three hugs and kisses I recieved from him in your front yard when we looked for the sprinkler;) Please know you...

Kay,
Our hearts goes out to you at this time and in the days ahead.

Aunt Kay,

He’d give you a big kiss on the cheek and one of those whole-hearted hugs. I will also miss the laughter. His deep laugh and smile were contagious. Everyone knows that when you were around Aunt Kay and Uncle Mike, there was a good time in store.
Also, he was a true, “jack of all...
