Dear Mary, John and family
We have lost a sweet, fun man too soon, for us and you Mary Lynn, but God's timing is perfect! You were such a Proverbs wife and helpmeet to him Mary. I enjoyed talking to Mike as we "passed the peace" Sundays at worship or just our conversations prior to it starting. A good brother-in-love to you John. He was so proud of you, his kids. His face would glow when he spoke of you. Sorry I didn't know you. You did bring him joy. God bless you all with the Comforter as you mourn his earthly body. He knew Christ so you will meet again one day
