    We will miss our very good friend Mike. He has been in my life and my family's life for 50 years. I think I can say that knowing Mike intimately he wanted to be a good father more than anything and loved his son Parrish. Mike worked hard even in illness to make sure Parrish had opportunities. Mike also took care of sick people,sponsored many people with drug and alcohol addictions, worked in soup kitchens,meals on wheels and other charities. He was a humble,grateful man who found peace with nature and his higher power.Mike was a man that tried to show the world the face of Christ in spite of his own struggles.He was not perfect,he made mistakes,but he kept trying to be a better man every day. We loved him very much and will miss him more than we can put into words.
