To know Mike is to love Mike! This wonderfully amazing man came into my life 38 years ago. We had a special relationship. He taught me about the stars and I taught him how important pink nail polish is. I also learned how to bait a mean fishing hook. More so I learned the meaning of unconditional love. Though our relationship wasn't always the best (sorry about the time I locked you out in a thunderstorm ). I forgive you for throwing away my best stuffed animal. Though nothing in life is perfect I wouldn't change a day that I had you in my life. You loved my kids and in turn they loved you. I know this isn't good bye this is until we meet again!! Shine like a diamond in the sky and I will look for you every night!! I love you more than any word could ever express. Tracy

My heart goes out to you and Mike''s family. I know that he now walks among the angels, and he also had his own personal angel in you. Thank you for showing us all how true love and devotion is.

God Bless!

Ruth ... I so hate what has happened because you two were so happy together, but I know he was so thankful for the day he met you and for every day you were in his and his families's life. I will be thinking of you and when you are ready to do another lunch with the girls just let me know.

Mike, you were not only my brother but my best friend growing up. We had the best time as brother and sister. We loved it when we did not have dates so we could go out together and have our fun. You always protected me from guys you did not like. We were also kissing cousins with Linda and Arleen and had a great time growing up together as close cousins. We did all kinds of mischievious things together like at Christmas we would wake up and unwrap presents to see what we got and then wraped them again, mom never knew we did that. You were always climbing out your window to be with your friends Bubba and Ronny. Phyllis and Stacy were too young when you left to have memories like we did but they loved you all the same. I could go on and on about the things we did but they will be my memories and yours. When you left at 18 to move to Maryland I felt I lost my best friend and as the years past we were not as close to each other as we were but you were always in my thoughts and my memories. You will be missed so much. And when you are looking down at us just remember I will get you back for our last boat ride that scared mom and I so much I still can see the devil in your eyes when you do it, you are not getting off so easy by passing. I love you Mike your sister Becky

Toni & Katy, I am so sorry for your loss. I know this is breaking your hearts not having Dad here with you. He was a great man. I know you ladies have a long road ahead to get your lives going again just remeber all the great memories and push forward. Toni you and Katy are two of the strongest women I know. You need each other now more than ever. I will always have the great memories of the house in Green Haven, Mom & Dad, all the trouble we got in and Katy always swimming in the pool giving us a bunch of lip as we were leaving. I will also remeber the Smile Dad always had on his face while drinking wine in the basement watching TV. I love you girls dearly I am sorry I will not be able to make it Saturday to be with you ladies on the hardest day of your lives but please know I am thinking of you and I am here if you need anything. I love you Toni and Katy girl, my thoughs and prayers are with you and your families in this hard time. Love Chantelle

Mike, I only meet you once but I felt like I have known you for ever. You made Ruth so happy, I know she will never stop loving you. I have heard and learned so much about you over the years, from what I know you were one great man. I wish we had more time to have gotten to know eachother better. Rest in peace my friend and look over Ruth, love Darlene Daugherty.
