I remember meeting Mike in 1989 when I was dating Jennifer.  Mike was a kind, patient, and easy-going man.  Mike enjoyed talking about muscle cars and engines.   My thoughts go out to Mary and Missy going through this difficult time.  May you have wonderful thoughts about Mike and how he touched your lives.  Your friend, Jarrod Love

I am so sorry for your loss! I was just talking about Shelley and her dad the other day, when he fixed the headliner in her Camaro by using a staple gun and Shell was not very happy about it.  Lots of good memories in your home! Mike was a sweet man!
