Saddened by your passing old friend. At least your worldly body is free if pain and suffering. Fly high and RIP Mike ??????

I have such fond memories of growing up next door to Mike and Cheryl, including playing in the pool and interacting with their many cats and chow chow. My dearest memories with Mike involved our playful “war of the dandelions.” Mike and Cheryl always had the most beautiful yard with well-maintained flowers. One of my favorite pastimes was to frolic thru the dandelions and kick them to release the seeds into Mike’s yard while he yelled after me “You little twerp!” I will always cherish these memories of Mike. Rest in peace. My condolences to the family.

Sorry to hear of Mike’s passing. We worked at HD Lee before a large group of us left there for the post office. We played softball one year I believe at the racquet club. I appreciated his sense of humor. Glad to have known him.

To Cheryl, Kim, Sierra, and to all who loved Mike: Please accept my deepest sympathies on the loss of Mike. He was such a hard worker and loyal friend. I used to kid him that he didn't know how to take a vacation from work. He was always "puttering" around the yard, house, or vehicles. He loved his Strawberry Hill postal route and they loved him back. As neighbors, my daughter, Becky, would always call on Mike and Cheryl for some fundraising campaign for her Catholic school. Mike would always complain, "Here she comes again!" He never failed to contribute. Rest, finally now, Mike, in the arms of Our Lord, good and faithful servant.
