  6. Janice and Patsy, I just found out about Michael and am so sorry to hear of his passing. He was always like a big brother to me and Sissy. I was just thinking about him the other day and how I should try to find him and say hello because we had lost touch over the years. I have so many good memories of growing up next door and doing fun things with him. Mama and Daddy loved him so much and he was always so kind to go see them and help out. My heart goes out to you. Karen

  7. Of course I remember Michael as that cute blond that was the youngest and a sweet little boy! As he took over the welding shop it seems the same as you daddy taught him. I had conversations on FB but had not seen him in along time. He seemed to love God and I know he’s in Heaven now looking down. I love you Patsy and Janice and will be praying for you. God love you all.
