Accept my condolences for Mike's passing. Mike was a dear friend for many years. He would always have a kind and friendly word, and sometime some advise for the day. We joked with each other each time we would be at a meeting, or at a dinner. And boy, did Mike have questions about many things. We had some very interesting discussions over the years. He will be missed, and may God Bless his Family.

Carol & Kelly, So sad to hear of Mike's death. May he rest in peace.

- Burch & Marie Bryant, Savannah, Georgia

Friends during our school years. Though time and life moves caused us to only run into one another from time to time. However each time MIKE met you, it was as though you just talked yesterday and time had stood still. Mike, you will be missed and one day hopefully our paths will cross again.
