Matthew,We were so sorry to hear of Mikes'passing on to glory. We will be praying for you and all the family.He was such a kind-hearted and loving young man.He loved us and I am so sorry mother and I won't be able to be there for the services. Mother stays upset all of the time,living in the past and her mind is never clear anymore. I have not told her about Mike yet. She has been crying and upset thinking my Daddy has just died and it has been 26 yrs ago. We loved Mike very much. I will miss him.,and I know if Mama were aware she would be highly upset also. I know where is now and how he suffered here. I know He will be awaiting his loved ones in heaven. Love, Mary and Linda
