Mike, was the kind of person that we came to depend on for many small but important aspects of our lives. He was always available to help us around the house, take care of our animals, when we were away, put up Christmas ornaments, entertain guests with games when we had BBQ's and on and on. He enjoyed many of the same activities that I enjoy and that gave us a lot to talk about, especially when he visited me in the Keys. He loved the water, enjoyed all of our sails and was excited when we went fishing. There was never a dull moment when Mike was present his enthusiasm was contagious.
Although Mike was important to us, his family has felt the greatest loss. Mike was a dedicated Son to his Father and Mother, a good friend and helper to his Siblings. He would always be available to lend his Dad a hand when needed, they were truly connected as a Father and Son. Mike was also a dedicated Father to his three children, I know, I observed his commitment and love for them on a daily basis. His support of their interests, activities and goals was unwavering, he was always there for them, and they knew it. I see and feel their loss each time I am around them, however, their good memories of him also shine through their sadness, and they have many good memories to bolster them as they continue to grow.
|Mike, Son, Father, Brother and Friend|
Mike, we all miss you, every one whose life you touched will never forget you, you will remain in our hearts forever.
