When he came in off the road he always enjoyed spending his time working around his home and seeing his children and grandchildren. He also loved watching old westerns on TV.
Mike battled lung cancer for 9 long months and knew his healing would take place here on earth or in heaven above. He prayed for that healing and received it.
We loved him deeply and strongly and know with assurance that we will see him again one day soon, until we see you again our hearts will hold you close and our memories will give us joy.
