  1. I’m gonna miss you Mike. I’ll miss our talks, your sense of humor, and your spirit. You touched my heart and I looked forward to seeing you each day. I’m glad I got to finish one last puzzle with you while we discussed everything from sports to cruises. Fly high and fly free my friend.

  2. I will miss you more than you know Mike. I have been blessed to have met you and to have had you be a part of my every working day from greeting me in the mornings as I walked in to teasing me most of the day. You made my job worth while.-Not many would dig through the candy basket to make sure I get my favorite dark chocolates. I will miss you at Thanksgiving and know that you’ll be there in spirit.-Who will I bring my leftovers too? God bless you Mike. I hope to see you again someday.
