    There are so many memories that will always keep you alive in my heart. I imagine you are either playing B-ball, country dancing, or organizing family picnic up in Heaven. We will meet again Uncle Mike, and will never be ill, old or in pain there in Heaven.

    I did not know Mike, but I do know Ray, Jaymus, and Nephi. Your sons bore their testimony to me and were a true influence in my perception of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Years later, they supported my interest in joining the Church and now I live a rich life! They are good men and I appreciate the guidance you gave them to live and understand this life and their role and affect on it. Thank you and your family for the blessing of your life through your sons! I know they will feel God’s love in your absence.
