Mike was a great friend and will be sadly missed. He always was there when I needed his help. Or just needed to talk. We shared many funny stories and some of the issues with today’s problems. Mike is in God’s hands now He always knows what is best. My prayers are with Shawna and the children turn to God and He will comfort you. (MATTHEW 5:4 ,. Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. )
Shawna my heart is aching for you and the children…life is not fair….trust in the Lord and he will get you thru this….God bless you and take care of you
Shawna and family,
May God wrap his arms around you and your children during this very difficult time. My sincere sympathy.
Shawna, your dad called and let me know about your loss. I’m sure there is nothing that can be said to make you feel better, but just know that as long as you and your family keep Mike in your thoughts and dreams, he will live on forever. Lora and I send our condolences and will be thinking of you and the kids at this very difficult time.
