  1. Kathy,
    We are so sad to learn of Mike’s passing. He was a very dear man and our hearts go out to you and your family for your tremendous loss. He always spoke of you, his sons, the grandchildren and motorcycles among many things that we will remember about him. He was very kind and friendly and worked harder than he should have. We liked him very much and will miss him even more. I looked forward to Spring just by knowing he’d be coming around again to give us an occasional hand with the yard or just see him and wave hello or have an impromptu conversation about bikes, traveling, family or dogs. Please accept our sincerest sympathy Kathy and bless you with the peace that only time can bring. May your memories bring comfort and life be good to you. He would want it that way, I’m sure.

  2. Kathy, My heart hurts for you. Over the years I had the opportunity to work with you, your husband even your son at the dialysis ctr and all of you are wonderful. I know theres a big hole with Mike gone. My thoughts are with you.
    Linda Smith
