    “Toast” – we hope you can feel our arms around you as we offer our love and sympathy. You were always a big part of our family – and we grieve for your loss. Mike’s “circle of life” has been completed and it’s now up to us to be the best we can be and meet him again in Paradise. May our Lord’s peace and grace be with you in the coming days. We will not forget Mike – and we certainly won’t forget you.

    God bless
