Hello Rebecca and Kids - Steve and I have great memories of worshiping and serving together at Trinity Fellowship. This week has caused us to 'pause' and reflect on those precious years of the past. We are so sorry for your loss, Rebecca. Mike was a great guy. May YOU find the strength and courage you need to walk through these next days. Sending our LOVE and a big HUG to all of you.

Oh, Rebecca, I just found this out! I am just so very sorry. I take it that cancer caused this. I guess the last time I saw Mike was at David's funeral. I am just so so sorry. I have lots and lots of fond memories of Mike at our house. And wasn't your birthday October 9? Sad, but I promise you will be able to think back on him without pain. So very sorry!!
