To the family of Mr. Dorsey, I'm so very sorry about the loss of your loved one. My heart goes out to you and your family. I know that no amount of words can take away the grief and sorrow you're going through at this most difficult time. Having lost loved ones in death myself, I've found and no doubt you have too, that the Bible to be a real source of comfort for us. Right now it seems as though the pain will never go away. Leaning on God Almighty will give us strength and comfort. In His Word, He assures us that He "is near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves". (Psalm 34:18) My prayers are with you and your family that you continue to stay close to each other and God in prayer. Never give up your hope in the promise that His dear Son, Jesus, made that "all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". (John 5:28, 29)

Mike was My Best friend ,he taught me how to fish and where to find the fish he was truly a River Man. Mikes Food was out of this world Ribs Boston Butts, Fried Turkey, But beside that Mike was somebody who would give you the shirt off his back and anything else you needed. He was proud of his Sons and Grand Children they called him PaPa that really made him smile. I know for a fact that he loved his wife Janie when he was really sick he always wanted the love of his life Janie with him. Rest in Peace Brother I will miss you Brother
