    Sincere condolences to the family and friends for your loss. What has helped me to deal with losing those close to me is what God has promised for the future. Revelation 21:4 says God will SOON eliminate death and suffering. Also He has promised  to resurrect ALL who have died! (John 5:28,29)  These are not mere words, but promises from Our Heavenly Father. They are sure to come true. I hope these thoughts can bring you some comfort during this extremely difficult time.

    We have so many wonderful memories with Mike. He was a very precious gift to us all.

    What a terrible shock. It is difficult to convey our deep sadness, but our thoughts and love are with you.

    Mike was part of the 102nd Place family. Where parents and kids grew up knowing they were loved. Mike was part of many friendships and my brother had many good memories with him growing up. Mike always said hi and was so very nice to my kids over the years. I know he loved animals and cared for many. He was a very hard worker and proud of how much he worked. He loved exercising and stayed in great shape. I will miss saying hi and knowing what a good person he was, but not worrying about the next journey as Mike I am sure passed with flying colors.
